Butterfly sighting

May 28 2007

Mike Reese

Location: Riley Lake Wildlife Area
Price County

I also saw Harris' Checkerspot or Baltimore Checkerspot caterpillars feeding on a nontypical hostplant for these species. I also saw four mated pairs of this robber fly and what I have always felt was my favorite Wisconsin wild flower, Gay-wings (Polygala paucifolia).
