Butterfly sighting

Cindy Donegan

Location: Chiwaukee Prairie
Kenosha County

Spotted several male and female Ruby Meadowhawks, a rather ragged Buckeye, Orange Sulphurs and a Variegated Fritillary visiting some small asters which were still in bloom. The majority of the wild sunflowers are now past the blooming stage and are attracting gold finch to the seed heads.
