Butterfly sighting

Location: York Prairie SNA
Green County

Windy and near 90 degrees. Despite quite a bit of milkweed there were not a lot of butterflies, but I did have 15 Monarchs which was really nice. The Dickcissel seemed way too bold and I thought there might be a nest near. I started to walk away when the female flew off the nest right in front of me.
