Butterfly sighting

Ron Arnold

Location: my property and surrounding property in the town of Seneca
Wood County

I wasn't expecting to see very much today and I didn't until I reached my patch of Asters. The Copper, Hairstreak, and Swallowtail were unexpected. All 3 set new late dates for me, with the Swallowtail being more than 2 months later than previously! The Hairstreak was my first in 3 years and these are my first photos of the Gray Hairstreak. The Monarch was seen in Wisconsin Rapids. I also picked up 2 more Deer Ticks, setting a new season high for me.
