I took a short drive away from my house with its parched reconstructed prairie and very sparse butterflies, to a boat ramp (Lincoln access) near Saylorville Reservoir today. There were more butterflies there today–mostly three species, the dainty sulfur, the little yellow, and the common checkered skipper, although I did see a monarch and a couple of viceroys as well.
I got a couple of photos of dainty sulfurs that I liked:
This is sort of the conventional photo.
This was a near miss. A little more in focus and it would have been spectacular. Not quite there, but fun anyway.
