Butterfly sighting

Location: Schlitz Audubon Nature Center
Milwaukee County

Lovely fields of prairie flowers made a pollinator's paradise today. Good to see lots of Monarchs still alive; I've heard reports of many being found dead on the beaches of Lake Michigan. Besides the butterflies, I came across several giant Puffballs including one twice the size of a person's head. I put my hat and glasses on it to show scale.
