Three more county records!!

On July 5 Colin Croft found a Least Skipper in a moist valley in the Wildcat Hills in Scotts Bluff County, a county where it had not previously been reported. Then three days later Jon Nikkila sighted a couple more Least Skippers at North Loup State Recreation Area in Howard County (again previously unreported) while we were scouting wetland habitats. On that same outing I spotted a Regal Fritillary flying across Highway 281 just west of Greeley near Spring Creek in Greeley County, one of the few counties still without a Regal record. These three new county records bring our total for the state this year to 10. Thanks to everyone for reporting their sightings!!
