Butterfly sighting

Jun 9

Karl and Dorothy Legler

Location: Yellowstone Lake State Park and Wildlife Area
Lafayette County

High was 91 degrees. Mostly sunny. Not much air movement. Humid. Considering the mild drought we had low expectations. But we had 17 species anyway. Many Silvery Checkerspots. We always enjoy the Jade Clubtail (dragonfly). The concession stand is indefinitely closed (so bring your own ice cream).
