Butterfly sighting

Jun 6 2017

Dean Hansen

Location: Fish Lake, Crex Meadows, and Namekagon Barrens
Burnett County

Dry--only one spot, a road through a bog north of the Namekagon River, had damp road gravel. Great weather, but butterfly numbers were low. Karners were the only blues seen. A few Hoary Elfins still at bearberry on the Barrens.
