Location: Homer Road near Fennimore
Grant County

90's and sunny from 9:30-10:30 and from 1:00-2:15 in a big field. The Great Spangled Fritillary was every where. It was exciting to see so many butterrflies. Red Clover seemed to be the most popular flower for nectar. After lunch it seemed that movement slowed a bit for all the butterflies making photos easier.
