Sighting for July 5, 2014

Steven Rosenthal

Fort Indiantown GAP WMA, Public Walk (#2 of 4 for 2014)
Lebanon County, PA

My sightings over 3+ hours, as 1 of about 180 participants. Ample numbers of Regals; about 7 Great Spangled for each Regal. Overall not as much diversity as Steve Glynn’s post from one year ago. Others reported single sightings of Baltimore Checkerspot and Gray Hairstreak. I don’t think anybody had Monarch(s).
