Location: Fish Lake SWA
Burnett County

All but the Karner were along Co. Road O on the south edge of Fish Lake SWA. Roadside birds foot trefoil attracted many of the butterflies seen. Others were on spots of damp road gravel. Butterfly milkweed along Stolte Road is starting to bloom, but no hairstreaks were yet on the blooms. Single female Karner was in lupines along Stolte Road.
