April 18, 2007

First butterfly of the season today! At least one Milbert's Tortoiseshell was seen resting on the ground during the warmest part of the day. This species, like its relative the Mourning Cloak, overwinters in Vermont as an adult! They fly during these early warm days of spring in order to seek mates for the next generation.
