Location: Various stops on Crex Meadows SWA
A group of 12 butterfliers hit Crex Meadows Saturday morning.
Olympia Mables were fairly common at all five stops. A dirt road leads south from Reed Lake Road to a landing on Reed Lake. Some animal--beaver, muskrat, whatever--leaves deposits of dung or castor (?) near the shore, and this consistently attracts butterflies, as with these Duskywings. Several Sleepy/Dreamy Duskywings went undetermined. The Persius was a positive ID.
No Commas, Question Marks, and Tortoiseshells were seen.
