Butterfly sighting

Jul 4

Rich Kahl & Laurie Yahr

Location: Small bog next to CTH M just E of Deer Fly Trail
Chippewa County

No Coppers and few cranberry plants seen at this bog only about 3mi from bog lake visited just prior today. Robber Fly (Asilus sericeus) "hugging" European Skipper? This dragonfly (American Emerald - Cordulia shurtleffli?) patrolled around us most of the time, feasting on the fattened deer flies feasting on us!
