Butterfly sighting

Jul 12 2014

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Four coastal bogs near Port Wing, Herbster, and Cornucopia. v
Bayfield County

2:49 am to 4:39 pm, 57-65 degrees F, 80% sunshine, wind north 3-10 mph. We also surveyed one bog roadside. These bogs are the wettest we've ever seen them. The Port Wing SNA West unit bog had the rare combination of Bog Copper and Dorcas Copper overlapping the same day with a Bog Fritillary and 3 Brown Elfins. This is one day later than our latest previous Brown Elfin sighting, on 11 July 2013 on the same bog as today.
