Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Leola Grassland Wildlife Area
Adams County

We walked 2 miles in the grassland and we each walked a different 1/2 mile of roadside. The Purplish Coppers were on both sides of Archer Road within 250 meters of the road (2 were in the roadside), all less than 1/2 mile wet of County Hwy W. The Variegated Fritillary was nectaring in the same patch as a Purplish Copper and was pestering the copper.
