Butterflies Are Beginning To Fly

West Virginia White
The butterflies are beginning to fly; between the rainstorms.  I saw a West Virginia White along the Shavers Fork on Monday.  I saw my second Eastern Tiger Swallowtail of the season yesterday.  Of course, the Cabbage Whites are patrolling the barren garden plots.  The hardy angle-wing species have been visible for almost a month.  A little blue butterfly sailed by me in the wind on Sunday.  I guess that it was a Spring Azure.  Now is a good time to prepare for new discoveries of Spring.
