We started doing NABA Butterfly counts here at the farm in 2005. (We actually tried starting in 2004, but it was cool and cloudy and we only saw a few butterflies.) Here are links to information about each year’s count.
Here are names and photos of the butterfly species I’ve seen at the farm. Click on a photo to see a page with information and more photos of that species. (There a few that I’ve seen but don’t have photos of – they’re listed below the photos in each family.) Mike Reese, his wonderful Wisconsin Butterflies website, and his help with the Butterfly Counts that we do here, has been an inspiration and a tremendous help in learning more about these butterflies.
