Butterfly sighting

Location: Woods and fields along the Chippewa River
Chippewa County

Sunny and calm.
Along with butterflies, I counted 7 late-instar monarch caterpillars on six different (woodland) poke milkweed plants.
Did not spend much time looking for Giant Swallowtails, but they were plentiful. No GS caterpillars seen as yet.
