Brant Reif

Bear Lodge Mountain, Black Hills National Forest
Crook County, WY

My son and I surveyed from 10-12. We started at the fire lookout and walked down to the tree line and back. We also saw one unidentified swallowtail and one unidentified duskywing. The Atlantis Fritillary was the unsilvered Hesperis form. The silvered form also flies in the Black Hills National Forest, but is much more restricted to wet areas.
