Monmouth County, NJ
12:30 - 2:30. Mostly sunny. Mid 50s. Only covered the Field of Flowers and the now-harvested soybean field beyond it. Some thirty small odonates were basking in the sun along the edges of the fields; Autumn Meadowhawks, I believe. I wasn't expecting to see a fresh, but unfortunately photographically uncooperative Red Admiral today. The Buckeye was getting a bit rough around the edges. Little Bluestem is now showing prominently in the field. The seasonally appropriate turkey, observed walking down the road, practically jumped into my car when I stopped to take a photo; it must have been newly released.
