These included Monarchs, Red Admiral, Silver-spotted Skippers and Broad-winged Skippers.
But the insect of the day was "clearly" the Clear-winged Moth at right, photographed by R.T. Geoghan. (Thanks, R.T.!)
The Meadowlands Commission has added steppingstones (below) to the Butterfly Bushes between the MEC and the walkway out to the Marshview Pavilion.
Now you can see butterflies (and clear-winged moths) without stepping on plants or getting your shoes or boots muddy.
