Friday at the Beach
Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis terniflora) covers a few big chunks of the cliffs, climbing into the trees. An escaped import from Asia, it is sometime considered an invasive species.
Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) which is definitely an invasive, and covers most of the cliff. Both are in bloom and very fragrant.
Cloudless Sulphur (Phoebis sennae) stopped by at a Jewel Weed plant.
Monarch (Danaus plexippus) sipped at the clematis.
Patuxent River Naval Air Station (most likely; maybe Andrews Air Base).
