Butterfly sighting

Aug 2

Rich Kahl & Laurie Yahr

Location: Wedde Creek Savanna SNA
Marquette County

Not many lupines but plenty of Karner's nectaring on almost any flower: sweet clover, knapweed, butterfly & whorled milkweed, bergamot, leadplant.
We are befuddled/confused about ID of some Coppers and Skippers. Possibly saw both American and Bronze Coppers as there was a noticeable size difference among individuals in flight; and presence of adjacent wetland along Wedde Cr.
Last 6 pics show 5 different individuals - all questionable ID.
