Butterfly sighting

Location: Goose Pond Sanctuary prairies
Columbia County

I took a mid-day hike around both the Lapinski-Kitzke and Browne Prairies at Madison Audubon's Goose Pond Sanctuary. Many Monarchs were seen, especially in areas where the Meadow Blazingstar was starting to bloom. I also saw one small sulphur which I suspect was a Little Yellow, but I was unable to get close enough to for a good look.
