Sighting for September 2, 2017

Barb Sendelbach

Warinanco Park (Roselle)
Union County, NJ

Overcast, cool and breezy. Not many butterflies seen at the mostly faded butterfly garden. I searched for caterpillars from the outside of the fence and managed to turn up 6 mature Monarch caterpillars feeding on several Butterfly Weed Plants. The garden has lots of Senna/Cassia. Unfortunately, I didn't find any Sulphur species feeding.
