Butterfly sighting

Jul 8

Joan Vennie

Location: Military Ridge trail, Verona
Dane County

Sunny, mid-70's, morning walk on a wooded portion of the bike trail. The Hairstreaks were searching out the sunlit spots in the foliage. I was unable to ID another 6+ flying around a tall elderberry bush. Impossible to get any pictures.
