Butterfly sighting

Location: my property and surrounding property in the town of Seneca
Wood County

I made two trips out today. I had no binoculars or camera with me for the first, and that's when I saw my first ever Tawny-edged Skipper. My Monarch sightings included 2 mated pairs that took flight from the same place at the same time. I've included a photo of a Ringlet without eyespots. Most of the Ringlets that I see have eyespots, but occassionally I find one that doesn't.
