Butterfly sighting

Location: Goose Pond Prairie
Columbia County

I saw Prairie Violets being grown and they do form an understory in the prairie, which is usually shaded. The fritillaries must be depending on these violets in some areas for their larvae to eat. I was riding in a group trailer; so I am certain most butterflies were missed on the 2 hour excursion.
