Butterfly sighting

Jeremy Meyer

Location: Hoyt Park
Milwaukee County

Jacob found 2 Marine Blues and alerted me to them. I got over there and the 2 he found turned into 5! We had 2 feeding on the yellow crown vetch and 3 more circling and chasing each other up into the air, all at once for an exact count. All 5 were located SE of the pool, where all 3 trails cross each other, close to the river. I've been searching the county for them, so it was nice to finally see one, let alone 5! Photos are just screen shots.
