Butterfly sighting

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

I've seen more Orange Sulphurs on the prairie this year than in any other year. The Monarchs also seem to be moving on as I'm only seeing one or two stragglers when I'm out there. Lots of Cabbage Whites, Pearl Crescents and Clouded Sulphurs enjoying the asters.
