Butterfly sighting

John Morrissey

Location: my home; meadow near my house; meadow by SB Anderson Memorial Preserve, Ice Age Trail Cross Plains
Dane County

Monarchs are specifically by the preserve where there's milkweed. The Eastern Tailed-Blue was in the meadow between the preserve and my house. Lots of Emperors at my house in the morning, but I'm starting to see them in the woods, too. Silver-spotted skippers are mostly at the meadows, but I sometimes see them at my house. Silvery Checkerspots are in the two meadows, more by the preserve.
