Location: Badger Prairie County Park, Verona
Dane County

Badger Prairie Park normally has large patches of liatris. This year, not so much. However, what was there was blooming nicely. I saw my first Peck's Skippers of the year. Many of them were interested in one particular piece of liatris. My challenge was to see how many I could get into one photo. (Answer: 5)
