starting to see a few butterflies

I've been meaning to update this for the last few days, but kept forgetting. I've been seeing a Great Spangled Fritillary around the garden pretty much every day now. Last year I only saw one once the whole summer! It won't let me get close enough to get a decent picture though. Also saw a Red Spotted Purple on a banana last weekend, first of those I've seen this year, and a Snout Butterfly. And of course various sulfurs, whites, blues and hairstreaks that I can't identify from a distance. The Giant Swallowtail I've been raising just started pupating today! Haven't seen any Monarchs around yet, and others I've talked to in this area said they haven't seen any yet either. I believe I have American Lady catepillars on their host plants, but they make nests and I don't want to disturb them.
