Location: Schurch-Thompson Prairie
Iowa County

Windy and warm. There were many yellow sulphurs puddling on the driveway. This was my first visit to this huge property. I did a circle walk around the wildflowers. Met the Murrays who said they had found 6 Regal Fritillaries, but unfortunately did not got to see any...I'll be back!
