Butterfly sighting

Karl and Dorothy Legler

Location: Various stops between Muscoda and Woodman in the Lower Wis Riverway.
Grant County

Always like to see Silvery Blues. The first Common Roadside-Skipper this year. Note checkered brown wing edge. This is the first of 2 broods in southern Wisconsin. While we observed the Tiger Swallowtail sipping moisture, a mating pair of flies landed on the wing and sipped moisture from the wing -- probably deposited there by dense morning fog. Also our first Pearl Crescent of the year.
