Sighting for August 19, 2020

Joanne Langabee

Lauritzen Garden
Douglas County, NE

Finally a day without clouds, and still a decent temperature, around 80. Very surprised to see a Regal Fritillary at Lauritzen Gardens since there is no prairie close to it, Missouri River on the east side. We also saw a Reakirt’s Blue which was also a great find but not as huge as the Regal Fritillary
