Sighting for August 4, 2012

Andrew Block, Scott Perry

across from White Lake WMA, Stillwater Rd./Rte. 521, Hardwick
Warren County, NJ

The adult Giant photographed was missing its tails and some of the rear part of the wings but the other was in much better condition. The sighting was actually at the preserved farmstead across from the management area. The Tiger was a nice dark form female. Everyone was nectaring on Bull Thistle (Cirsium vulgare).
