Good butterfly day!
Yesterday was a pretty good butterfly day here. I saw my first Buckeye of the year. Also, a Black Swallowtail laid a bunch pf eggs, the first set I've gotten this year so far. Also saw a Snout Butterfly, a short glimpse of a Great Spangled Fritillary and again, some sulfurs and blues and hairstreaks. Quite a few small skippers around too, I got a picture of a couple of them mating and of some American Lady caterpillars. Unfortunately, I think my camera may not be working right, so they may not have taken.

short garden update
Saw a Zebra Swallowtail in the garden very briefly over the weekend, it was just finishing up nectaring on a Butterfly Weed.
I may have seen a Great Spangled Fritillary yesterday too, just got a glimse of the butterfly so I'm not certain, but that is what it looked kind of like.

Still not back together yet
I still don't have myself back together yet since my father's death, I'm slowly getting there though.
I still haven't had time to answer the emails people have sent me either, but I will get to that soon.
Last weekend I did see an American Lady butterfly laying eggs though! This was the first American Lady I've ever seen! I got some pictures back of it today, but they didn't turn as well as I had hoped. I don't believe I even have an American Lady page on the site yet, or pages for its host plants - I'll try to add those sometime in the next few weeks.
