Butterfly sighting

Location: Verona, Prairie Moraine County Park
Dane County

Great day. Mid-70s and sunny. Quite a few asters and lots of clover. The great spangled fritillary spent a very long time nectaring on one of the last large thistles around. The two most numerous butterflies were fiery skippers at 25+ and Eastern-tailed blues at 10+.
