Butterfly sighting

Location: Buena Vista
Portage County

I was checking to see if I could see my first Regal Fritillary of the year, but I didn't see any fritillaries. I did however see a spectacular number (actual count) of Long Dash almost all of which were nectaring on Nodding Thistle (Carduus nutans). I saw three flowers with 4-5 on them.
