Butterfly sighting

Dan Sonnenberg

Location: My Marsh (Oxford,WI) & father-in-law's farm (Moundville, WI)
Marquette County

Sunny and 86º. First Eastern Pine Elfin. It sat on this flower (flying away and coming back to it) for more than an hour. One of the Commas was protecting his territory. He landed on me about 18 times. Finally relaxed and let me get as close as 4" with the camera lens.
