Butterfly sighting

Location: Just outside of Dodgeville
Iowa County

My first snout! It was sitting on a solar pool cover, and would keep coming back to the same spot. Either it was attracked to the blue color or the heat. Also more new sightings for me, although not butterflies, were male promethia moths. They fly during the day and the first 6 I saw looked so much like butterflies that I was convinced that they were more pipevine swallowtails, or a lot of black-form tigers!
