Butterfly sighting

Location: Fitchburg, Quarry Ridge Recreational Area
Dane County

Besides Cabbage Whites, no species in abundance. There were a good number of asters around, so I thought there might be more butterflies. I was disappointed to see only one fiery skipper, since they have been my most consistent butterfly of the summer. The two small ponds at the park are completely dry, and the water levels in the small lake are very low. A person could walk around the whole lake on the dry lake bed.
