Jun 1

Stan Rehm

Location: Fitchburg residential butterfly garden
Dane County

The Peck's is a first-time recognition in our garden.

This is the latest we have gone in a year before being visited by a Monarch. Our 200+ milkweed plants were feeling lonely.

10.7 hours. Long-term monitoring of Karner Blues at 14 sites (50-61 straight broods at about 12 sites and 35-41 straight broods at two sites) and monitoring of Phlox Moths (28 straight years) at about 17 sites (some are Karner monitoring sites too), at which we also counted butterflies. The Karner Blues we saw were 105 males, 20 females, and 3 of undetermined gender. The Frosted Elfin was 150-200 m south-southwest of the Wazee County park entrance in a unit where we also found one on May 11. It is a low year for Phlox Moths here: we only found a total of 6 Phlox Moths at 5 sites today, and 2 moths in 2 sites on May 22.

Beautiful day, before the high heat of the weekend. I expected to see more butterflies. I didn't see any Monarchs, even though the milkweed is plentiful and healthy. It seemed like there were plenty of nectar sources, too. We hiked the prairie and the woodland.

2:20 hours. Five Karner Blue long-term monitoring sites (50-62 broods counted at 4 sites and 35 broods counted at the newest one). Four sites are adjacent to County Highway X and one is inside the fenced Sandhill WA. We also saw an unidentified blue and an unidentified tiger swallowtail. The Gorgone Checkerspot was probably the 1st one we've seen in Wood County in 5+ years.

This is the first time this season I've seen quite a few monarchs in one place. After an early season prescribed burn, the plants at this location are really re-establishing. The common milkweed is in good shape and is about to bloom. Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone with me, so the photos are fuzzy.

The Hackberry Emperors are back this year! I had not seen any around my house prior to last year. This year I first starting noticing them around June 8th, but they come out in numbers (30+) every morning now. The flight is perhaps not as big as last year's, possibly due to lack of precipitation, but we'll see how it develops. I got some nice close ups a fellow perched on my hand and thumb. They also seem to love dog feces and crowd it (or furry dog toys, or anything else might contain an excess of dew compared to surrounding plants and surfaces).

Red Clover seemed to be the most popular flower for nectar. After lunch it seemed that movement slowed a bit for all the butterflies making photos easier.

Trying to confirm whether Aphrodites Fritillaries were out here, and searching for wetland coppers. This is unusually early for Aphrodites in central Wisconsin, but we thought we might see a few of them based on the advanced stage of other butterfly flights. We each walked about 2.5 miles in the grassland and separate 0.5 mile sections of roadside ROW. We also saw many unidentified crescents.

Great place for dog exercise and butterfly surveys, as the maintenance crew keeps it walkable, but retains prairie plants for pollinators. I only had my cell phone camera, and I was a little distracted today--I know there are many more species and butterflies here every day. But this is what I counted today during a brief glance around. It was a slightly windy day; partly sunny; 81F.
