Butterfly sighting

Location: Schlitz Audubon Nature Center
Milwaukee County

The butterflies were lovely but the most excitement I had this morning was when I came across a hen Turkey with chicks. One of the chicks got separated from the group and I picked it up and got a brief cuddle before reuniting it with its family. I got a picture of a “punctuation” butterfly that was so worn I cannot tell whether it is a Question Mark or a Comma and, although they are poor quality, I got my first pictures of a Little Yellow. There were also many beautiful Ctenucha moths.
