Butterfly sighting

May 23 2014


Location: Crex Meadows
Burnett County

66 when I entered the meadows. Very little wind all day and sunny skys. Slow start but in afternoon I began to encounter butterflies. Missed a few duskywings as they were not settling down for pics. One possible Comptons tortoiseshell flew by. One possible juvenals but it was a quick flyby. Searched several spots for brown elfin but came up emtpy. Many butterflies seemed to be taking their first flights right before my eyes. Wish I could have returned to meadows over weekend.
