Last month, Marlene and I completed our 20th season of "4th of July" butterfly counts in north central Minnesota.

With the help of a small, but dedicated band of counters through these years we have now attained our 113th count since July 1993. (By the way, we have now tallied 125,717 individual butterflies for those 20 seasons combined.)
