I drove up to Little Falls, Minnesota today. I was able to get out and photograph butterflies today. One that is a very long shot that might be possible here is Oarisma poweshiek. That would be huge, and I did not see anything resembling that.
I did find two that were new to me, however. The one I will feature today is the common ringlet, Coenonympha tullia. It does seem to be somewhat common and may even be expanding its range. But we have extirpated it from Iowa.
