Butterfly sighting

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

Noted what I believe is our first Banded Hairstreak on Moely Prairie. Also noted a pair of what I believe to be Eastern-tailed Blues mating, although one of them looks quite different than all the others I've noted in the past. Tons of Monarchs, but no American Ladies now.
