Butterfly sighting

Esjay

Location: Crex Meadows
Burnett County

I seldom get two days in a row on the meadows. Returned to same locations as previous day for most part. Hoary elfins definitely not there day before. One pine elfin was not in area day before. Many more cherry blooms. Found some violets blooming (not birdsfoot). One bush attracted 3 species (see pine elfin pic). Still no skippers.
