Butterfly sighting

Location: area around Hartman Lake in Hartman Creek State Park
Waupaca County

The sun disappeared shortly after I arrived and came back out after I got home. The Silver-spotted Skipper ignored nectar sources and was very difficult to approach while resting on the roadway. I picked up enough deer ticks here to set a new seasonal high record, with lots of season left yet.
