The Red-spotted Purple is even more tattered than it appears! I finally found a mated pair of Peck's skippers, and also saw a Hummingbird Clearwing and a Snowberry Clearwing.
On Aug. 3 (signup deadline July 27) I'll be teaching a butterfly gardening class at Olbrich Gardens (see www.olbrich.org under education).
