Butterfly sighting

Location: Fish Lake & Crex Meadows SWAs
Burnett County

Five Mourning Cloaks were seen on Fish Lake SWA on damp sand/mud of Hickorson, Jimmy Carter, and Stolte Roads. The Eastern Comma was on the unnamed east-west road between Hickorson and Jimmy Carter Road. A single Mourning Cloak was seen near the northern end of Curry Road in Crex Meadows SWA. Air temp was a delightful 75 degrees. Butterflying resumes! Also common on damp mud was a native bee, I believe a species of Colletes.
