Sighting for June 7, 2019

Jack Miller

Sourland Mountain Preserve
Somerset County, NJ

Mid-day; cloudy and 70's. On-going construction complete with excavations makes this a weird place to be. However, the milkweed is beginning to bloom and there were plenty of bflies. Most of my attention was focused on a last attempt to find pepper and salt and I certainly missed many butterflies. A highlight was when the Emperor landed at my feet.
