Butterfly sighting

Apr 6

Rich Kahl & Laurie Yahr

Location: UW Lakeshore Path/Wally Bauman Woods
Dane County

100% low, dark clouds; mid 50s; light winds. Comma landed on maple sapling for a taste, fluttered about and back to the sapling briefly, then fluttered to a leaning dead tree trunk with a cluster of dried bracket fungi underneath. Comma then "dove" directly into 1 of the larger brackets with curled edges where it obviously intended to stay. I had to crawl on my back underneath for pics.
