Butterfly sighting

Aug 7

Amy Chamberlin

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

The only butterfly I don't have pictured is a Giant Swallowtail. I saw one in flight on 8/7/19 on Moely Prairie and then again nectaring on the prairie on 8/8/19. I can say with certainty that what I saw both days was the Giant even though I couldn't believe I was seeing one up close! It was a first for me and a first sighting recorded on Moely Prairie as well.
