Sighting for July 15, 2017

David L. Amadio

Horseshoe Bend Park
Hunterdon County, NJ

Observations made between 9:30 and 3:30. Gray Comma was a no show until after 2 p.m. Both were puddling. Likely males. Juniper Hairstreaks were actively nectaring on what appeared to be narrow leaved mountain mint, a few on common yarrow, and one on Wild Bergamot. One E.tiger was a dark form female. Spent very little time in the dog park field as Bobolinks were becoming agitated.
