Bayfield County

Nectaring vigorously on my garden's Hydrangea paniculata shrubs and Eutrochium /Joe Pye weed by open fields surrounded by mature northern hardwood forest, this beat up Papilio cresphontes appeared Sept. 12, 2017. Located about a half mile from Lake Superior. What a thrill!
This represents the northernmost sighting of this species in WI. MR
