Butterfly sighting

Jun 18

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Bogs near Amnicon Lake
Douglas County

Mostly cloudy and with rain approaching at the end, 73-77 degrees F. Eight bogs. Same sites as May 27 and June 14 except that today we omitted the Frigga Fritillary specialty bog at Bear Creek SW. 19 of the Bog Fritillaries were found at the Chaffee-Foxboro Bog and the Milchesky Road 1.75 bog. The Bog Fritillary count is probably below the long-term average here, but today's count is 10-12 times as high as our combined 2020-2021 index at these bogs during the Bog Fritillary flight.
