Butterfly sighting

Location: Riveredge Nature Center, Newburg
Ozaukee County

Lowest total species here since early June. All five Banded Hairstreaks were badly worn. Very sorry to note that the extensive muddy patches on the trails, which had been attracting a variety of puddling butterflies, have been "repaired" with a thick layer of gravel. Not a butterfly in sight now.
