Sighting for October 14, 2020

Sharon & Wade Wander

Home garden, Fredon Twp.
Sussex County, NJ

A really gorgeous, sunny day with highs in the low 70s. Not many butterflies around, but while Wade was on the phone with Jack Miller bemoaning our failure to reach 50 garden species for the year, along came a nice female Common Checkered-Skipper to take the honors. We have very few sightings of this species in the yard.

  • Cabbage White 2
  • Clouded Sulphur 1
  • Monarch 4
  • Common Checkered-Skipper 1
