Kenosha County

Partly cloudy. Moderate Temp. About 3:30 PM. Many Cabbage white, Great Spangled Fritillary, a few blue, a Red Spotted Purple and a Monarch

Coming home from Pennsylvania at a turnpike stop I spotted a strange critter which turned out to be a Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. Hard to Photograph, they move pretty fast.
