Two _Colias philodice_ (Clouded Sulphur) were flying last Tuesday, November
23, in central NY (Clinton, Oneida Co., USA).  This was after several
frosts and one light snow, but the day was warm - upper 60's F.  Today
we're into winter and getting several inches of snow, so that is likely the
last butterfly observation of the year.  We make first observations so much
more readily than we do last observations.....
