Geez! I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted anything.
It has been very good butterflying so far this late Summer. Butterflying in Isabella Co., I was able to find a very fresh Leonard's Skipper (Hesperia leonardus).
My son David and I went into Roscommon Co. recently and explored Houghton Lake Road. This site was given to me by my friend Jack Reinoehl. A nice mix of butterflies were recorded here, but not many of any one species. I have to revisit this site in the Spring or early Summer next year.
Got my Ingham County lifer Common Ringlet on 8-12-2015 at Michigan State University. While butterflying Dansville SGA on 8-16-2015, I recorded at least 4 more at the corner of Williamston Rd and Ewer's Rd. Common Ringlet is my 75th Ingham County butterfly specie.
