Butterfly sighting

Jul 29 2017

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Eight bogs near Amnicon Lake and Moose Junction
Douglas County

Same bogs as July 22, but today we didn't do a roadside count at the two Moose Junction bogs. We think Purplish Fritillary should have been in main flight today. This is our lowest main flight count of Purplish Fritillary ever out of 20 years monitoring the six bogs here where we have seen the species. Our previous low was more than 4 times as high as this. Note that we visited again on August 11 in case the flight was later than usual this year.
