Butterfly sighting

Jul 8 2017

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Buena Vista Wildlife Area
Portage County

Surveyed the remainder of our 25 Regal Fritillary long-term plots, and several others. Found Regals (27 males and one female) on 13 of the 14 plots surveyed, and Gray Coppers on 6 plots. Aphrodite Fritillaries and Regal Fritillaries are having below average years at most sites we've seen or heard about.
