Butterfly sighting

Christine Stanke

Location: Private family land on Cty T in the Town of Alban
Portage County

I also saw a Fritillary, 18+ yellow swallowtails, a White-striped Black Moth, a Six-spotted Tiger Beetle, another type of Skipper and several other moths. The highlight of the day was taking part in the rescue of a fawn that had fallen into an abandoned silo pit. The fawn was not injured and ran off in the direction where its mother had been last seen.
