Butterfly sighting

Location: Crex Meadows
Burnett County

Heat got to us early afternoon. Butterflies very active causing some photo difficulty. Noted Dusted skippers in pairs like photo. Seemed to be male guarding female from other dusted's. Did not notice eggs below Hoary elfin until uploading pics from camera. Karners in many locations. Also saw 1 Slender Clearwing and 1 Snowberry Clearwing
