Butterfly sighting

Location: Mariner's Trail, Manitowoc to Two Rivers
Manitowoc County

Not much nectaring on the flowers. Lots of Bronzed Tiger Beetles on the beach and I was surprised to find a female Pelecinid Wasp. The wasp looked like it was having problems as it was down by the water, but I nudged it after taking lots of photos and it just flew away.
