Sighting for November 18, 2016

Mark Adams

Jones Mill Rd, Jarmans Gap Rd, Clark Rd, Piedmont Store
Albemarle County, VA

13:30-15:45 EST. Sunny (0% cloud), 0-5 mph wind, 70-73 deg F (near record). Almost the only flowers were in the roadside gardens along Jarmans Gap Rd near Old Trail, so most of the butterflies were here. Was surprised that I did not see any Commas or Question Marks. All the Sachem were worn; others looked fresh or nearly so.
