Butterfly sighting

Location: Fitchburg
Dane County

Same location as yesterday, but a different time of day (noon today vs late afternoon yesterday). Clouded Sulphurs still rule, but I saw a few different butterflies and two moths. I'd never seen the white-striped black moth before. Very small, less than an inch long.
