Butterfly sighting

Location: spruce/tamarack bog in the town of Cranmoor
Wood County

I wanted to look for Bog Coppers, so I set up my plank bridge across the ditch and slogged around in the floating part of the bog. A long search produced no Coppers, but I did see lots of Elfin Skimmers. I left the bog and walked the road, and just as I was about to leave, I found a Bog Copper on the road next to my truck. The Grass Pink photo includes a Crab Spider with a Long Dash.
