2014 Mourning Cloak

Spotted my first mourning cloak butterfly in the yard last week! He/she was soaking up the sun and didn't really mind my present as I tried to stay still and behind it. 


Sweet sighting I tell you in the early of spring season. I also saw the flickering of cabbage white butterfly but couldn't get a picture. In truth, I rather go after the mourning cloak since I don't get to see it often.

Looked like at the end of her wings there were some tattered, but she was quite a beauty to see. I can't wait for more butterfly to come around.

NICE! I haven't seen any butterflies at all this spring. Still too early here north of Toronto, I guess.

Oh I thought it is a piece of rock from the first picture.

What a beautiful mistake.
