Butterfly sighting

Location: Deer Lick Lake Rd southeast of Drummond
Bayfield County

At one point I counted 22 White Admirals, 3 Canadian Tiger Swallowtails, and 1 Question Mark on this very fresh wolf scat. The Question Mark is actually the first I've ever photographed up here. This seems to be a good year for them and Black Swallowtails in the northwoods. A bog along this road that hosted many Bog Fritillaries around this time last year held none on this day.
