Butterfly sighting

SWBA FIELD TRIP

Location: Cherokee Marsh in Madison
Dane County

This was an annual field trip of the Southern Wis Butterfly Association. 28 butterfly watchers participated. We found 10 species which was the lowest number in the 9 years we have data! Presumably cold winter and cool spring is the cause. Hackberry Emperor landed on various people which is always enjoyable! Great Spangled Fritillary was absent indicating they are running late this year. Dorothy Legler took the photos.
