Patty, From my experience, there is a usual big flight of American Coppers up there in the second half of September...

I needed to voucher the cloak but couldn't net it and didn't have my camera. Also took a short walk around my yard and saw 1 Monarch, 1 Sulphur and 14 American Copper. I have never seen more than 2 American Coppers at a time. Is there any explanation for why I had so many?
