Butterfly sighting

Jun 20 2014

Fern Springs

Location: County Rd C various stops between US 18 and Millville Unit Lower Wisconsin State Riverway
Grant County

1:45 - 3:40, low 80s, very humid, sunny. Hackberry emperors were everywhere. They swarmed me when I got out of my car. Many were very friendly, landing on me and staying for a while. A couple of them, along with a couple of commas were brazenly licking my sweat. Gives new meaning to butterfly kisses. I saw three white butterflies that I couldn't get close to.
