Butterfly sighting

Aug 4

Beth Stetenfeld

Location: Nine Springs, Madison
Dane County

Perfect weather and conditions for a butterfly survey: early afternoon; light wind; low 80s; plentiful native, blooming wildflowers. Once again, however, many fewer Monarchs (and butterflies, in general) than I would expect for this time of year and the conditions.
