Butterfly sighting

Location: White River Marsh
Green Lake County

The Dainty Sulphurs and the Fiery Skipper were in an old disturbed field that had been cut some time in July. Hoary Alyssum was abundant but there was some bare soil with lots of low growing chickweed. This was the last place I stopped and I could have spent a couple more hours there. There were more butterflies here than in the nice flowering sedge meadows. I think I saw a Checkered White, but wasn't 100% sure, so probably will check back here later.
