Butterfly sighting

Location: My backyard in Prairie du Chien
Crawford County

Warm, windy, and partly cloudy.

Seen my first Sachem, I may have seen this year 15 to 20 grass-skippers, the last 2 years I've at least double this number on sunny day in August and September.

Had 5 Monarchs in the late afternoon, most of the day there was at least one in the garden.

Finally, the garden as been filled with up 10 White-lined Sphinx moth for the last few weeks.
