Butterfly sighting

Location: No Joshin Trail in Saint Francis
Milwaukee County

Went here on this beautiful sunny day to look for the reported Marine Blues and wasn't disappointed. Also ran into several friends who were also out looking for butterflies. The prairies are in glorious flowering, but the Marine Blues favor the invasive Crown Vetch. A female Black Swallowtail was laying eggs.
