Butterfly sighting

Location: Mequon Nature Preserve
Ozaukee County

Mild, intermittent rain, then sun, then clouds. Some of the butterflies were still flying in the light rains. Almost as many Viceroys as Monarchs. Even got a photo of a Viceroy perched on a Milkweed leaf. The thrill of the day was the Bronze Copper which I think is a male.
