Butterfly sighting

Location: Haystack Corner Peatlands (SE part of county)
Sawyer County

Finally able to document Freija Fritillary in Sawyer Co. after 10 years of off/on trying; this is a nice population on the southwestern range extreme in WI. All were fresh patrolling males; one paused to nectar on leatherleaf just long enough to snap a blurry photo but otherwise they were constantly on the move.
