Butterfly sighting

Sylvia Edlebeck, Joan Vennie

Location: Bauer-Brockway Barrens
Jackson County

Mid-80s, sunny. Walked alot, saw alot. Harris checkerspot was a lifer for both of us. Lots of Karner blues, most nectaring as would be expected. One chose to sit on my camera (this is why I always carry 2 cameras, to be able to take a picture of the other camera if there's a butterfly sitting on it), then sit on my finger, then sit on my shirt. It stayed with me for about 10 minutes. Also saw some other grass skippers that we were unable to identify.
