This was the 32nd annual Mud Lake Count by the Southern Wisconsin Butterfly Association (a chapter of NABA). 8 observers spent much of a hot day finding nearly 350 butterflies of 32 species. Thanks to butterfly counters, Mike Reese, Dave Hogg, Fred and Kate Dike, Pam Skaar, Jim Otto, Karl and Dorothy Legler and a Madison Audubon team at Goose Pond. (The results of the latter group is not included in this report but will be included when sent to NABA.) Photo of Northern Broken-Dash is by Karl Legler. Other photos by Jim Otto.
