Butterfly sighting

May 18 2014

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Marinette County I barrens and Dunbar Barrens SNA
Marinette County

8:47-10:59 am, 62-75 degrees F, 95% sunshine, wind west 5-10 mph. Elfins seemed in the early part of their flight because Hoary Elfins are quite abundant on some of these sites. All 8 patches we surveyed have Chryxus Arctics, so it seemed like their flight was not detectable here yet.
