Butterfly sighting

Aug 4

Pam Campbell

Location: Dunnville/Larrabee & Maple Grove Rds
Dunn County

Mostly sunny, 70s and beautiful. Both of these dirt roads are a favorite spot to find butterflies. Though the puddles and potholes on Larrabee Road have been recently filled with gravel. (I've never been so disappointed with road repair.) It's great fun to find multiple Common Checkered-Skippers. I rarely see even one per year. Painted Lady is also FOY. Cardinal Flower is blooming.
