Observation notes: Scared up in grassy area in Deer Creek Marsh Wild Life Area. Mostly sunny mid 70's most common butterflies were monarch very common also common was Cabbage. One Azure, 10 Pearl Crescent, 1 common Wood Nymph Crescent and Wood nymph Lifers! Very grassy area thankfully not mowed like most of the country side, cut for hay i understand mowing everything only thing i can think of is vector control? very little habitat left for butterflies and other insects and nature. Almost no Butterflies everywhere we went except monarchs and cabbage! saw lots of milkweed gardens must provide for cabbage white. Seemed like very few bee's also? Beautiful area Wonderful People!
