Butterfly sighting

Location: Marsh Haven Nature Center, Hwy 49, Three Miles East Of Waupun
Fond du Lac County

Barely hit 70 degrees, and almost calm. Lots of butterfly activity.... just had to pay attention for anything besides monarchs, sulphurs, and whites. The female eastern-tailed blue (with no tails) was laying eggs on alfalfa flowers.
