Butterfly sighting

Location: Spring Green Preserve
Sauk County

Went looking for Olympia Marbles, but I ended up being too late in the season for them. Most butterfly activity was taking place beyond the treeless part of the trail, but before the forested part (i.e., where there were some trees but not dense). A few tiger beetle species were also seen (Oblique Lined, Big Sand, Festive).
