Butterflies and golf balls

I saw several attractive butterflies on the little white asters that are blooming everywhere now and I was able, with the help of the Internet, to identify them. They are Northern Buckeye or Common Buckeye butterflies (Junonia coenia).
 I noticed that there was addition to a sign in Brookside park. The people who added the notice on golf balls probably did not realize that in doing so, they took out the most interesting geocache in Rensselaer. It was a hollow bolt that held a tiny piece of paper. It took me several attempts a couple years ago before I finally found it.

We got into geocaching not that long ago--so fun! Sorry we missed the best cache, too. Hopefully it will be replaced.
