The First Butterfly

The First Butterfly

The larger, more colorful ones aren’t back yet, but this little Cabbage White is ready for the first span of really warm days, catching the first flowers—in this case, one of the first dandelions!

And every spring I learn a little more—this is a male butterfly because he has only one spot on each wing, while the female has two.

  1. I love butterflies. Will be couple of weeks until we see them here though.
    Great picture as always.
