Butterfly sighting

May 23 2022

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Bogs near Amnicon Lake
Douglas County

20% sun, 61-72 degrees F. It took too long to get good enough weather, so we only did the 5 highest priority sites: Lyman Lake, Bear, North Bear, Milchesky 1.15, and Milchesky 1.75. The Henry's Elfin, which we've seen only 1-2 times before in these bogs, was at North bear. Red-disked Alpines were at Lyman Lake and Bear Creek Bogs. 36 of the 42 Freija Fritillaries were at Milchesky 1.75 and Bear Creek.
