Butterfly sighting

Location: Sauk City canoe launch
Sauk County

My friend Ruth Smith & I checked out the canoe launch early in the afternoon before the rain moved in. She got her lifer Dainty Sulphur but no pic. I was able to get one of it tho. We also had several Big Sand Tiger Beetles and a fly I can't ID. Saw an Eastern Comma sharing some Monarda with a Silver Spotted Skipper.
