Location: Buena Vista Grasslands
We surveyed about half of our Regal Fritillary/Gray Copper long-term monitoring sites (each surveyed beginning in 1997-2001) plus another plot that has both species. We walked about 7 miles in the grassland on these transects and >4 miles to get to the transects. Great Spangled Fritillary #s are unusually high at Buena Vista this year. So far the Aphrodite Fritillary counts are below average, but maybe they are still climbing toward their peak.
