First Wisconsin butterfly sighting this year
An Eastern Comma was seen in Dodge County on February 20 - a full two weeks ahead of the earliest sighting ever previously recorded. This species is one of the ones that overwinter here in hibernation, so the species is not surprising, but the timing is quite remarkable.
The game is afoot, Watson.
