Butterfly sighting

Jun 15

Donna M Williams-Richter

Location: Muscallounge Road near Beetown
Grant County

Sunny with some wind, 75 degrees observed between 3-4 p.m. It really looked like the "Summer" Spring Azure was ovipositing on the Swamp Milkweed buds. Although Milkweed was not on the list I checked it did say that the Azure Butterfly has been reported to use many different flower buds.
