Butterfly sighting

Rich Kahl

Location: Hardscrabble Prairie SNA
Lafayette County

Many more "Blues", smaller Fritillaries, and Comma/Question Marks flitting along forest-dry prairie edges.

I'm uncertain about the Meadow Fritillaries (less than 2" wingspan at forest edge)- if photos 3-4 are not then delete the 2 Meadows.

I'll leave the Skippers to your expertise: 1st 2 photos possibly Little Glassywing? If not delete those sightings. No good guesses on the last 4 photos (more Glassywings?) but add 1 each to totals (these are 4 different individuals).
