Butterfly sighting

Location: Verona, next to my apartment
Dane County

I've consistently seen Eastern tailed blues and Peck's skippers near my apartment. Always a treat. Today there was much non-butterfly activity -- damselflies, dragonflies, many different grasshoppers, and one of my favorite moths, the chickweed geometer.
