Location: Town of Mellen: Mineral Lake (Chequamegon National Forest)
Ashland County

I saw several Cananadian Tigers STs that appeared to be "puddling" ona strecth of gravel road. I pulled over and they flew. There was a dead Canadian Tiger ST on the side of the road and it wasn't long before it was covered with with the same 4-5 butterflies that flew earlier. (see photos). Also found my first WI Eastern Red-backed Salamander.
