Butterfly sighting

Location: Fish Lake SWA
Burnett County

With all the rain we've had my favorite butterflying road was flooded. The next best spot I like is the intersection of Southwest Dike Trail and Cty Rd O. I spent a lot of time checking out Rough Blazing Star but still have been unable to spot a Leonard's Skipper. Both Karners were males and one was very fresh and rubbing his wings together.
