Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Barrens along Wood County Hwy X
Wood County

Leonard's Skipper monitoring at four sites near Sandhill Wildlife Area. The Leonard's Skipper count is below average for here. These sites looked drier than the barrens in Jackson County. The 2 female and 1 male Karner blue were probably from a partial 3rd brood. Some other multi-brooded species like Eastern Tailed-Blues and Meadow Fritillaries seem to be doing well now and hitting above-average numbers late in their seasons.
