Butterfly sighting

May 23 2015

Dean Hansen, NRFW butterfly trek

Location: Crex Meadows, Namekagon Barrens
Burnett County

Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin butterfly trek; numbers are combined from May 22 (done alone) and May 23 (NRFW group). Area still dry; no mud puddling at all. Dusky wings scarce. All butterfly numbers very low. Leather leaf and New Jersey Tea plants killed back to the ground--why?? Bearberry in good shape, though. Lupine out on Klotz Rd in Crex.
