Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Buena Vista Grasslands Wildlife Area
Portage County

We surveyed five 800 meter grassland transects and one 400 meter transect looking for wetland coppers and to add sites to the breadth of our 2022 Regal Fritillary monitoring. The four patches with a history of Regal Fritillaries in them had 4, 4, 2, and 7 male Regal Fritillaries on our surveys. The Purplish Coppers were in 3 different patches, but the Bronze Coppers were all within 10 meters of each other.
