Butterfly sighting

Location: Muscallounge Road near Beetown
Grant County

Around 12:30, very sunny, mid-70's. Excited to see these butterfly visitors and very pleased to see another brilliant Spring beauty, the Sarcoscypha coccinea, also known as the Scarlet Cup Fungus or my favorite name the Scarlet Elf Cup. Although very tiny (3-5 cm) it is very recognizable.
