Butterfly sighting

Location: Leola Grasslands Wildlife Area
Adams County

One mile of roadside counting per person to check for Purplish Coppers. We saw 71 Purplish Coppers in the wide ROW south of Apache Avenue in the first 1/2 mile east of County Highway W. We also saw 5 of them in the ROWs along Archer Avenue in the first 1/2 mile west of County Highway W. Most Purplish Coppers were in good or excellent wing condition, so there may be plenty of time left in this brood.
