Terns, Butterflies, and Dragonflies at Shabbona Lake State Park

Stacia and I decided to spend a few hours last Sunday at Shabbona Lake State Park with Bella. It was hotter than we expected and bird activity was pretty low. But we did manage to see quite a bit of interesting butterflies and some Forster’s Terns hunting in the lake.
