Fontenelle Forest
Sarpy County, NE

Walked from 9 - 11. Started out sunny and then it got cloudy. Temperature around 82 degrees, wind 9.2 mph. Was surprised at all of the red spotted purples and eastern comma that I saw. Driving to the parking lot I saw at least 5 Red-spotted Purples that flew up and I could identify for sure. I am sure there were more.
