Butterfly sighting

Glenda Denniston

Location: Lakeshore Nature Preserve, UW Madison
Dane County

Newly planted wetland gully at edge of woods, Lakeshore Nature Preserve, UW Madison, WI. I was weeding new plantings and the Snout flew from one of the marking sticks to the cuff of my work glove. Did this numerous times and when I offered my finger it perched on me, apparently sipping sweat. Stayed near me for more than 2 hrs, perching on my hand periodically. Had to be careful not to squash it.
