Butterfly sighting

Location: Cherokee Marsh
Dane County

Walked different trails than I did on Friday, but one thing was the same: Pearl crescents rule! Lots of great spangled fritillaries, several even flew right near my face. Highlight of the day was seeing a Baltimore checkerspot, the first I've ever seen.
