Albemarle County, VA

1:00 - 3:45 pm EDT. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy, 75 – 79 deg F, wind 5 – 10 mph. Good diversity (22 species) with not unexpected relatively small numbers other than the sulphurs, Variegated Fritillary, & Sachem (though the Sachem horde was much diminished from 2 weeks ago). I was surprised that I did not see a Monarch or two.
