Sighting for October 2, 2015

Home certified butterfly garden #1427, Marietta
Cobb County, GA

65 degrees, gray and mist from the remnant hurricane. Often times when such storms pass, butterflies not usually seen appear. First sighting ever at this location of a Brazilian Skipper, for the most part, out of its normal range. Species number 47 for the year here and number 68 all time (last 5 years). Knew it was something special right away due to its large size. Only butterfly of the day.
