Butterfly sighting

Location: Morrison Prairie & Forest Preserve
Iowa County

This was my first visit here. The blue sky that I was hoping for went away before I got there and I only saw a Cabbage White on the way up the hill. There were lots of nectar sources, especially puccoon, but there is Columbine for duskywings, and Red Cedar for Juniper Hairstreaks, as well as rock cress for Olympia Marbles so I think all of them should be there. I am looking forward to checking this out again soon.

puccoon and Violet Wood Sorrel were abundant
