Butterfly sighting

Location: Schurch Thomson and Shea Prairies
Iowa County

The Pearl Crescents and Great Spangled Fritillaries were very worn. Also saw 4 other worn butterflies that I couldn't identify for sure--maybe ladies? Except for 2 of the Orange Sulphurs the butterflies seemed to be ignoring the asters. In other years asters seem to be a big hit with butterflies but this year it seems not so much.
