Lauritzen Garden
Douglas County, NE

Finally a perfect day for butterflying. Little wind, no clouds and between 55-60 degrees. We had snow and freezing temps on Sunday so great to see anything. This was our weekly walk through Lauritzen Gardens. Today saw a Gorgone Checkerspot for the first time in the gardens. That makes 4 new butterflies for the garden this year.
