Butterfly sighting

I mainly did a count on the west and south areas of Southwest Dike Trail. The count of ET Blues is very conservative. They were everywhere. I chased a lot of little blue butterflies trying to find a Karner. The Dainty Sulphurs where zooming back and forth on the trail and I was lucky to see one finally land for a few seconds.
