Butterfly sighting

Aug 13 2014

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Karner Blue Meadows SNA
Waushara County

8:57-9:45 am, 61-67 degrees F, 100% sunshine, wind north 1-3 mph. We were hoping to find Purplish Coppers because Ann Thering found them here in 2009. Today the Purplish Coppers were all in a sedge meadow bordering the south and SE side of Bonneville Lake. We saw 6 males and 2 unknown gender ones, so maybe there is some time left in the flight here. All 6 Karners were females and in the more shaded slower phenology eastern 1/4 of the site.
