Butterfly sighting

Location: Sandhill Wildlife Area
Wood County

I saw 2 mated pairs of Acadian Hairstreaks sitting within one foot of each other. The milkweed is just starting to flower but the dogbane is perfect right now with many butterflies nectaring on it. This was my best butterfly day of the year, by far!
