Butterfly sighting

May 31 2014

Douglas Buege

Location: Riley Lake area
Price County

Thanks bunches to Scott Swengel for the great advice, though I hiked the muskeg bog twice, Friday evening and Saturday morning, and only saw two Friggas in there. I went to the cattail area and felt pretty exhausted by walking and fighting black flies.

I was seeing elfins and duskywings starting at 7:20 am.
Freijas were all seen in bogs along Riley Lake Road while Friggas were down Gates Lake Road--on road and in bogs.
