Location: Black River State Forest, various locations south of HWY 54
It was sunny, breezy, very warm, and very dry. There were almost no road locations for butterflies to puddle at. I saw the Western Fox Snake sunning itself on a road. A fresh pile of wolf scat attracted several Canadian Tiger Swallowtails and Juvenal's Duskywings. I saw several other Duskywings that I was unable to ID to species, plus one sulphur butterfly that was either a Clouded Sulphur or a Pink-edged Sulphur, but I couldn't get close enough to be sure.
