Butterfly sighting

Location: Riveredge Nature Ctr
Ozaukee County

1 dark form Tiger. 6 "Blues" but only 2 landed for ID. The 17 Hobomoks, all sitting for positive ID, represent only about 1/3 of all orange/black skipper type butterflies I saw - the rest were flitting about. Many Virginia Ctenucha moths in areas.
