It's been quite some time since I posted (computer issues and starting work at Algonquin have held me up), but I wanted to make a quick post about some special butterflies. Earlier this week several of the Algonquin Naturalists headed out in search of bog-inhabitating butterflies, in particular the Jutta Arctic. After some brief flybys, we finally managed to find one of these rarely-seen insects sitting still.

The same bog also held a number of fritillaries. I believe them to be Bog Fritillaries, but it is a difficult identification from above and I would welcome comments. I have never seen this species nor Jutta Arctic before. (edit: I later confirmed these as Bog Fritillaries)
