Butterfly sighting

Location: Necedah Wildlife Refuge
Juneau County

Stopped at the Necedah Wildlife Refuge around 5:30 on my way back from the Chequamegon Bay Birding & Nature Festival in Ashland hoping to see some 'Karner' Melissa Blues, and I was not disappointed. Found about 8 individuals in one patch of lupine. Also saw numerous Tiger Swallowtails while driving through the Refuge, including a group of 8-10 who were puddling along side the road.
