Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Buena Vista Wildlife Area
Portage County

We walked 7.5 miles to flor Leonard's Skipper surveys of 9 grassland plots and 1 barrens that had past Leonard's Skipper records or now have a record (a grazed patch surveyed for Leonard's Sk. for the first time today). Five of the Regal Fritillaries were in a patch that has been partially hayed every 1-2 years on a long total rotation for the whole patch.
