Butterfly sighting

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

In the two photos showing the pair of Clouded Sulphurs, (one with wings open and one with wings closed) there is a white female depicted. The Orange Sulphur, which is a first time photo capture for me on Moely Prairie, unfortunately was being predated by an ambush bug at the time of the photo. I decided to try and count the Silver-spotted Skippers and stopped at 42 in just one area. They are everywhere!
