Butterfly sighting

Location: Havenwoods State Forest
Milwaukee County

1:30-2:30 pm, warm and sunny. The Hobomok Skippers were in the dappled sun on an open path in the woods. The Mourning Cloaks were also in the woods and the Azures were on the wood margins. All of the other butterflies were out in the open fields. I watched one of the female Monarchs lay eggs on common milkweed.
