Observation notes: Walked around a bend right on the edge of the lake and a number of butterflies were flying around this one tree (whose trunk was in the water---levels of the lake way over due to heavy rainfall this year), I believe an Elm tree, including several Red Admirals, very dark in color. Weather: 70 degrees, 34% humidity, clear skies.
