Butterfly sighting

Jun 27 2013

Mike Reese, David Hanson, David Bratley

Location: Chequamegon National Forest, Moquah Barrens area
Bayfield County

The numbers here are very conservative. At one puddling area I counted 256 butterflies (53 Pink-edged, 162 Northern, 5 Tawny, and only 3 other species). At another puddling area on a Forest Rd. that really doesn't get traveled that much, I found 22 dead crescents (road kills) 8 of these were Tawny Crescents!
