Butterfly sighting

Location: Crex Meadows
Burnett County

What a difference two days makes. Road puddles were dried up, temps started at around 74 but climbed into mid 80s resulting in rapid movements and not a lot of nectaring. Well except the hairstreaks who were plugged into the various milkweeds in bloom. Winds were not excessive for most of the day, but did get very gusty between 3 -5pm.
