Subject: [NHBirds] Rumney Wave 9/22
A pretty good afternoon wave tempered by biting insects and tough back light. Attempts at photos went for nought as they were shredding through the leaves.

Two Palms were first of the fall… the unknowns were too fast in poor background.

All week there have been numbers of Painted Ladies about, some being quite attached to the mint that is flowering. Have also seen at least a daily Monarch, Common Ringlets, Cabbage White, Clouded and Orange Sulphurs, and a Question Mark. Some late skippers have been too elusive.
