Butterfly sighting

Location: Moely Prairie, Prairie du Sac
Sauk County

Saw lots of butterflies, especially Monarchs, but it was very windy and I wasn't able to get many photos. I did note several large Monarch instars still eating milkweed, and for the first time, we noticed some Monarch roosting behavior in a tree line on the west end of the prairie.
