Sighting for September 28, 2017

Joanne Langabee

Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, NE
Douglas County, NE

A perfect day for butterflying, around 73 degrees, very little wind, and sunny. I was out for 4.5 hours. The Painted Ladies are still thick. Go by the asters and they will all fly up. Other visitors to the garden were really enjoy watching them.
