The most Hackberry Butterflies I have ever seen in one day. The entire Millville trail had them. At the largest cluster of them I counted 26. At one point I had three on my chest and one on my camera. I also took a picture of a Turtle laying eggs with a Hackberry sitting on it. You didn't have to walk to find them. They are all on the trail. My first American Painted Lady was at Woodman.
