Butterfly sighting

Jul 2 2014

Joshua Cullum

Location: Evansville SWA
Rock County

I was mostly watching birds, but also looking for butterflies, especially keeping an eye out for Regal Fritillaries, as the habitat seems like it could support them. This is the first time I've seen a Coral Hairstreak before, and it was cool to see one.
The weather was cloudy, windy, and, at the end, rainy. Not a very good day for butterflying, and most of the ones I saw were butterflies that I accidentally flushed.
