Butterfly sighting

Location: Muscallounge Road near Beetown
Grant County

A few butterflies that I didn't see yesterday at this location. It seems that I seldom see the American Lady so happy to see this one even if it was beat up. I very seldom see butterfly predators when I am out and about but in the last few days I spotted the Meadow Fritillary under attack by three different predators: a bird literally swooped down in front of me and snapped one up, a Garden Spider had one wrapped in his web and today an Ambush Bug had one in it's clutches.
Another beautiful sunny day with no wind and temps in the lower 80's F.
