Butterfly sighting

Location: Walking trail at High Cliff State Park
Calumet County

I took a nature walk in hopes to see my first butterflies of the season this afternoon. It was 77 degrees and sunny. I was beginning to look hopeless, when all of a sudden I saw a good sized shadow coming from up above. I looked up and it was a Mourning Cloak. (Just like Mike describes in his write up.) I also saw two Commas in the same location which cooperated for photography much better than the Mourning Cloak did.
