Lone Monarch was struggling across the lower harbor / upper Raritan Bay to try and reach N.J. on contrary winds. Sulphurs seen all appeared in good condition, one of them an “albino” form. The weather was sunny, yet still a bit cool.

This is the 1st day that the temps have gotten warm enough in the past couple of days, and the winds have calmed. These factors allowed the butterflies to shake off the cold and take to the air. They have moved from the lawn to the hedge.
