June 28, 2014: Gray Copper

Gray Copper. 6/20/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

Gray Coppers can be found in the northern prairies, in moist meadows, drainage ditches, and along pond and stream edges.  They are uncommon to locally common, with a flight season of mid-June to mid-August.  Only one brood is produced.  Favorite larval food are docks, both native and introduced.
