Butterfly sighting

May 7

Dean Hansen

Location: Crex Meadows SWA
Burnett County

Temperature was a cool 48-52 degrees for the couple hours (3-5PM) spent on Crex. The few butterflies seen were in protected areas, e.g., north roadside of Klotz Rd. just east of James Rd., with an oak forest to the north to stop the wind. The Silvery Blue and Duskywing were seen here. Four Olympia Marbles were on the south-facing slope below Crex Ridge Road.
