Butterfly sighting

Jun 25

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

It was a warm, partly cloudy day, just after a few rain showers. I saw lots of the usual butterflies, but have noticed a large hatch of Coral Hairstreaks, the likes of which we've never had before. I included a Reversed Haploa moth for good measure.
