Butterfly sighting

Location: Dunnville Barrens
Dunn County

76 degrees and mostly cloudy while I was there, between noon and 1pm. Looking for my FOY Leonard's Skipper and found one. The blazing star are just beginning to bloom. It was an interesting critter day. A Hog-nosed snake took exception to my efforts to shoo it off the road. I spotted a sunning Six-lined Racerunner (pretty sure I've never seen one before) and a couple of Tiger beetles.
