Orange Sulphur

Prompted by the exceptionally warm weather, butterflies emerged in a big way this week. Just in the last two days, I have seen my first Cabbage White, Orange Sulphur, and Mourning Cloak of the year. Above is an Orange Sulphur sipping from a Lesser Celandine flower in Donaldson Park yesterday afternoon.

Red Maples are among the many plants blooming right now.
