Butterfly sighting

Location: North of St. Croix Falls
Polk County

Hwy 87 heads north from St. Croix Falls. Just beyond the town's northern boundary, there is the Lions' Club Picnic Area on the St. Croix River. A hundred meters to the north of the entrance to this, on the east side of 87, there are some tall vervain in bloom in a damp area. The butterflies seen were on the vervain blooms. No effort was made to ID the dozen or so dun/broken dash skippers seen.
