Location: Muscallounge Road near Beetown
Grant County

Common Milkweed was the star today! I found at least one of each species visiting the Milkweed and two of the Hackberry Emperor were lunching on the Milkweed. (I've read a number of times that these butterflies do not seek nectar.) Sunny between 11-12:30 with temps around 75.
