Butterfly sighting

Location: WE Grasslands, St. Francis
Milwaukee County

Dozens and dozens of Sulphurs dancing above the fields full of many kinds of clover and vetch, but nearly everyone I could get a good look at was an Orange Sulphur. Also many European Skippers and try as I could, I couldn't find a single other kind of Skipper. Had my first Buckeyes of the year. Got an interesting picture of a Summer Azure feeding on a bird-dropping. And another picture of what I think is a very worn and faded E. Tailed-Blue.
