The Search for the Blue Karner

karner 20113Friends, the Blue Karner butterfly is rare even in Crex Meadows.  This tiny blue butterfly is about the size of a nickel, and has distinctive markings on the back side of the wings.  My friend and I have searched many places for this lovely blue and never found them until I retired up north. Now every year I go in search of them partially to renew old times and to reassure myself that they are still there.  This one is for Cheri  til Tomorrow MJ
