Painted Ladies still pouring in

for the last week Painted Lady butterflies have been everywhere locally with last weekend seeing a strong northerly movement through the area; with light SE winds today another arrival / movement seems to be underway; most of the ones I saw in the week were simply flying by but this morning some were stopping to feed on clover flowers along the Humber bank; most are old and faded / bleached individuals like the lower two but I did come across this brighter / fresher individual early this morning before the sun got too high

None of our butterflies are out yet. It was also very cold here in SW Ohio this morning.

You probably don't remember when people lived and died at home and endured wakes. I wrote about it here.
