Saturday, July 3: The annual butterfly count was held today. Despite having beautiful weather for the count the total number of butterflies counted was only 56% of average (992 individuals). 44 Species of butterflies were recorded. Perhaps the cool wet weather this spring had an adverse impact on the butterfly population or delayed the emergence of mid-summer butterflies.

Four Eastern Commas tied the previous high count for this species. As usual, the count recorded an good variety of skippers (14 species). Other insects of note included Brown Mantidfly and Nessus Sphinx at Spring Garden prairie..

Thanks to the Friends of Ojibway Prairie who provided lunch for the 21 participants. See the count page for details.
