Cape May Bird Observatory Garden, Goshen & Beaver Swamp Wildlife Management Area, near South Dennis
Cape May County, NJ

A hot humid morning, but comparatively few butterflies. I hadn’t visited the Cape May Bird Observatory Garden near Goshen in a couple of years. Unfortunately, many nectaring shrubs and the Butterfly bushes, gone. Far less of a magnet for butterflies than in some previous years.
