Butterfly sighting

Jul 4

Rich Kahl & Laurie Yahr

Location: Small bog lake next to a paved road, NE Chippewa Co. Forest
Chippewa County

Many copper butterflies; stopped counting Bog Coppers after ID'ing 10 perched bright males. We were not as confident with Dorcas and others. Many cranberry flowers and some Marsh Cinquefoil. Roadside of grasses and Spreading Dogbane (Apocynum androsaemifolium). Many Dorcas chasing and nectaring among the dogbane.
