Butterfly sighting

Aug 3 2015

Alon Coppens

Location: Private grassland, Town of Wheaton
Chippewa County

Missed a lot of good shots today!
2 Eastern Tigers: one black and one yellow.
Monarchs have been the predominant large butterfly here for the past couple of weeks - the first time that's happened in a few years at least. The eight I saw included a mating pair that flitted in and out of my camera frame for a good minute or so. Still didn't get a good photo.
