Butterfly sighting

Location: Waubesa Wetlands SNA
Dane County

Woods unpleasantly overrun with mosquitoes, but an abundance of butterflies, especially in the field near the parking area. My first GST sightings of the year. In addition to those listed there were a dozen Fritillaries, many Skippers, and I think some alba varieties of the Sulphurs. The Common Wood-Nymph was eager for salt from my trekking poles.
