Butterfly sighting

Location: spruce/tamarack bog in the town of Cranmoor
Wood County

I had been walking around in the bog and had just stepped back out onto the road when I encountered a Black Bear. It was about 50 yards ahead of me and was about to cross the ditch onto the road when we saw each other. It immediately turned around and headed back into the bog. Thankfully, it didn’t have any cubs with it. It headed off in the general direction of where I parked, so I decided to spend more time than usual at the far end of the bog. When I returned, I found that it came out on the road, and its tracks were next to mine. The photo has my 3x5 notebook next to one of the tracks.
