First Butterflies of the Year
We're in the midst of a now two-week long rainy spell. But on February 24, and also on February 27, I saw fresh male cabbage butterflies during a couple of dry days. The first butterflies of the year! Once this storm passes through and the weather warms up a bit, the western tiger swallowtails (Papilio rutulus) should be out and about.
