I saw two butterflies of note on this trip.
1. Viceroy (first sighting this year) No photo. :(
2. Leonard's Skipper (first sighting ever) Managed to get some photos!
Black and Yellow Garden Spider
This spider had just caught the grasshopper (bottom left corner) and was busily wrapping it up in a silk prison when we came up to it. Then, it hurried up to its 2nd catch to wrap that one up, too. Kind of scary to be walking around in a meadow filled with these huge spiders. We saw 3. I wonder how many we didn't see......
