Proctor 6 is a nonpriority block, but it includes our residence, hence  
relatively close to monitor.  Formerly 34 species had been  vouchered and today 2 
more were added from a single site.
Seventy-five minutes of butterflying during the mid-afternoon produced 11  
species including: black swallowtail (1), clouded sulphur (33), orange  
sulplhur** (3), bronze copper*** (1), Eastern tailed-blue*** (1), Aphrodite  
fritillary** (2), pearl crescent (4), viceroy* (3), common ringlet (1), monarch  (7).  
The powerline cut was aflame with goldenrod along with some  asters.
The bronze copper seemed completely out of habitat, neither wetland nor  
sedge to be seen!
