Butterfly sighting

Jul 8 2012

John Davis

Location: in my backyard in Prairie du Chien
Crawford County

Nice July day, mid 80s and reasonably humid with some wind. Both Fritillaries were in the backyard at the same time, very hard to tell apart with wings closed. The skippers were intent on chasing each other, making it difficult get any pictures.
