Milwaukee County

Warm and sunny. The first butterfly I saw about 8am was a Silver-spotted Skipper sunning itself on the beach. Lots appeared as it warmed up. By 11am, the milkweed meadow was filled with Monarchs. Saw several lovely moths, including a Haploa, a Ctenucha virginica, and a Snowberry Clearwing.
