    Had a great day today, along with Teresa Knipper, Jean Gutsmuth & Chip Krilowicz, exploring several Salem County hotspots. I put up individual location reports for the several spots we visited.

    The star attractions were the Bronze Coppers and Rare Skippers, and both showed proudly. We recorded an amazing number of each, record high numbers for the area. We topped out with seventeen Bronze Coppers, besting a previous high count of thirteen and had a total of thirty Rare Skippers on the day, with twenty-eight as a single site record high.

    As a group, we found thirty species on the day, with perhaps over 500 individuals seen/counted.

    I was able to chalk up another two species in the county on personal stops I made on my way home, for a total of thirty-two species for the day.

    A really nice outing and many thanks for my fellow butterflying enthusiasts for the help and companionship today.
