Location: Private property at southern edge of Birchwood Township
Washburn County

As always here, many unidentified skippers and crescents were also present. The common milkweed was just beginning to bloom, and a recent shower had many species puddling.

The spring azure appears to be the "Spring" Spring Azure variant, based on the more pronounced black markings.
