They're coming back in twos and threes instead of the dozens I expect. Today I saw a female Tiger, a Pipevine and 3 Spicebush Swallowtails. I was encouraged when Susie said they're scarce at the Butterfly Garden she maintains in the next county north.
A Dogface Sulphur Zerene cesonia was puddling at the door of the toolshed today.
He clung to a rusty bucket of landplaster. I do not know if he was after
Calcium fromThe the Gypsum or iron in the rust.
Are you seeing butterflies?
