First butterfly sightings of 2015

                                                       above a Mourning Cloak Butterfly

Yesterday May 4th.  I was walking along an old, wet, muddy woods road and I spied several Eastern Commas.  they were so colourful and beautiful!  What a wonderful first sighting for this spring.  Later on during the afternoon I saw a handsome Mourning Cloak. My camera beautifully picked up the blue dots edging its wings!
