Location: Blue Mound State Park
How nice to be surrounded by butterflies again! Lots of commas and Mourning Cloaks as hoped for, but several surprises too. All of the commas spotted appeared to be gray commas. We saw one Compton Tortoiseshell, not a butterfly I've ever seen this far south in Wisconsin (good views so a positive ID, but no good photos). AND while going through my photos I spotted a Red Admiral in the same picture as a mourning cloak. Wasn't expecting that, so was surprised.
Mourning Cloak, Red Admiral
