I saw and captured my first photo of a Butterfly this spring.
I believe this is an Eastern Comma Butterfly. I didn’t take Entomology in College, I took Soils that semester. I helped some of my friends collect bugs but that is all.
I am still waiting for the first Robin in our yard. “She Who Sees Robins First” ( my sister in law) had one in her yard on Saturday. There were twenty or so Robins at Josh and Missys all last week…they are at the end of our driveway but do you suppose we have any in our yard…no. Our neighbors must have real tasty bugs in their lawns.
I am patient, sooner or later they will be in our yard…I bet if I started up the lawn mower they would magically appear.
Back to the Butterfly, I think they overwinter and hatch out in early spring… this one seemed sleepy and slow…hence the photograph!
It is fun to see something emerge from a winter’s nap.
Far Guy thought he heard a Loon down on the lake. I sat outside for a long time one evening and didn’t hear a thing but a siren drawing near and then receeding far away.
