Butterfly sighting

Jul 26 2012

D Nussbaum

Location: Brillion Nature Center
Calumet County

The upper prairie had few butterflies compared to the gravel portion of Bastian Rd. where lots of puddling was going on. Mostly Orange Sulphurs but also Clouded, Northern Crescents and E Tailed-Blues. The totals with pluses could possibly be doubled and still be accurate. The numbers were amazing. Lots also farther south and west of the parking lot.
