Butterfly sighting

Location: Spring Green Preserve
Sauk County

I did a three and a half hour survey for the Northern Barrens and Ghost Beetles. I was about ready to give up when I finally found three Northern Barrens in a fifty yard stretch. I also found the Oblique Lined Tiger Beetles in a new area that is about 400 yards from the previous area. Still no Ghost but I did find a Grasshopper with bright red mites on it.
