Lake County, Illinois — Lyon’s Prairie

Six or seven Northern Pearly-Eyes were chasing each other low in the shade beneath a large oak in the woods. They would frequently land on the trunk of the tree, but before I could get a good photo (these are somewhat blurry), they were chased off by an orange butterfly I wasn’t able to identify.
