Butterfly sighting

Location: Crex Meadows SWA
Burnett County

Mid 60s in the morning warming up to high 70s but with the warming came the wind. The Purplish Copper count was conservative. I had a hard time counting all of them in the mowed grass area around the bathrooms at the rest area. I had never seen one there before. They were landing on the grass then moving down to the ground.
