Location: My Yard, Meadow and Marsh
Marquette County

89 degrees and Sunny. Didn't even make a full pass through the bean field before I counted the 350th Dainty Sulphur. Took Doreen back out to see a cluster of 25-30 on some flowers in the meadow. She got to see 85-100 from the seat on the 3 wheeler. A dying elm in the front yard held nearly all of the Mourning Cloaks and Red Admirals.
