Location: Private grassland in Chippewa R floodplain, west of Chippewa Falls
Upper 60s, calm, sunny. Asters, few Goldenrods, and a few Black Eyed Susans. Thistles now done. Eastern Tailed-Blues continue to be plentiful and vibrant. 2 Great Spangled Fritillaries (not pictured) were tattered, tan and beige. I was also unable to photograph few dark grass skippers (Dun?) flying fast and low. Single Northern Crescent very worn. Viceroy, initially found among aspen saplings (though photo on prickly ash) perhaps the most vibrant specimen I have ever seen. Lots of Autumn Meadowhawks and quite a few Mosaic Darners out too.
