North Cape May ~ my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Severe sustained winds all night (thought the roof might come off) and lasting until noon today. Now about 15-20 MPH, sunny, low 50’s. Black Swallowtail cats #5. All look viable. Monarch’s mostly in the protected backyard. They come down to feed low to the ground and sun themselves. Many plants with wind damage. Digital images of all butterflies except American Lady.
