Butterfly sighting

Location: Lion's Den Gorge Nature Preserve - two miles south of Port Wahington
Ozaukee County

Unexpected numbers of butterflies for this time of year. A dozen close-by Monarchs visible at any given time along the trails, with plenty of Clouded Sulphurs, and Cabbage Whites mixed in, along the bluffs of Lake Michigan, two miles south of Port Washington, on the numerous New England Asters, and a few daisies. A friend and I covered a very small portion of this nature preserve for about an hour.
