I saw my first Mourning Cloak butterfly of the season right in my own backyard!
Let the games begin!

My husband took a power walk this afternoon and when he got home, he told me he saw a brown butterfly with beige/yellow edges. It flew around him and batted him twice on the forehead. He was sweating and he thought the butterfly was trying to get at his sweat.
