Butterfly sighting

May 5 2017

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Barrens near Brockway and Bauer Roads, and Hwy 54.
Jackson County

6.2 hours, 59-75 degrees F, 100% sun. We saw at least 16 unidentified elfins and 10 unidentified duskywings. Ann found the Painted lady--at least 4 small spots of equal size near margin of hind wing below. I think we were fortunate to find a Persius Duskywing this early.
