Location: Badger Dr., Beechnut Ln. and 28th Ct.
Waushara County

I ran into a group of Silver-spotted Skippers on Badger that were chasing each other and buzzing me. I could hear their wings when they got close to my head. Most of the Dun Skippers were on Beechnut. All three Hairstreaks were on one Swamp Milkweed at one point.
