3:15 pm, a warm (70F) day… flew up into a distant tree
very little blooming- a bit of golden rod. fields mowed. [Moderators: Apparently something of interest flew into a distant tree. Presumably a butterfly but what species? So, we are opening this up to the readers of this page. Use the date, location, and the comment that includes 2 hints: it flew into a tree, and that it was quite likely identified even at a distance. What could it be?]
