D Nussbaum

Location: Emmons Creek Road
Portage County

Emmons Creek Barrens SNA and the Ice Age Trail. 1:00 to 3:45 overcast and chilly till about 3:15. Was supposed to be sunny. The two largest butterflies that I saw were both shivering. Took video of one and put it on YouTube.

The last time I was here I got just 5 ticks with no spray. Today I had more than 25 and I sprayed and resprayed.
