There has been some more activity at the milkweed as well as other visitors to the garden. However, the bait, mud and scat remain untouched.

In the evening I had a butterfly visitor at the moth lights. A European Skipper joined the crowd. I have had a number of butterflies come to the lights at night through the years. This was my first Skipper. The night before I had a beautiful Promethea Moth come to the back porch light.
