Butterfly sighting

Jul 5 2016

Location: Fish Lake SWA
Burnett County

Most butterflies seen were on damp road gravel or roadside vervain or swamp milkweed, 0.1 mile north of Co. Rd O on Jimmy Carter Road. Dun skippers were too skittish to photograph. Approaching storm cut trip short--was unable to look for hairstreaks on butterfly milkweed on Stolte Road.
