Location: Big Bay State Park
Bayfield County

A trip to Northern Wisconsin gave me a little time to find a few new species. A Red Admiral greeted us at the Park Entrance like an old friend so I took that as a good omen! The Swallowtail and Monarch were visiting the Bog Labrador Tea. I was very excited to snap photos down in the bog of the very small black and white flier until I realized it was 'just a moth.' Found the Ringlet near the hotel in Washburn. No wind, sunny with temps between 70-85 from 9-12.
