Butterfly sighting

Location: Buena Vista Grasslands
Portage County

This was my annual stop to look for my favorite robber fly, Promachus fitchii, which no one has seen anywhere else in Wisconsin. I saw a female laying eggs and one male flying away. Cloudy and windy. I didn't see a single butterfly nectaring.
