Recently, Marlene and I completed our 17th "4th of July" butterfly count season in north central Minnesota.

We have now completed 95 summer counts in this neck of the woods. This is the 15th straight year that we have held six counts a summer. We are grateful for the handful of enthusiastic counters who join us as we tromp around searching for butterflies.
