Butterfly sighting

Location: Cherokee Marsh, north side of Madison
Dane County

I sort of figured I'd see sulfurs, but not a Common Checkered-Skipper! The skipper was fairly active, flying back and forth along the grassy path by the prairie, stopping to bask regularly. Also multitudes of Autumn Meadowhawk dragonflies and a nice flock of Rusty Blackbirds.
