Location: Hospital grounds on Spring street
Racine County

Still nice out, sunny, but clouds building. Few hours before the storm hit. Spotted a Morning Cloak flying around. Followed it with my eyes as it went into the tree top. As I watched i saw several Morning Cloaks flitting through the upper branches of a willow tree. There may have been more but I was only able to count seven distinct individual. Too far away for a good picture. Here's an old one of the willow by the pond. A quick check of the bank of flowers I've been watching was down to couple skippers.
