C is for Comma

A short pause is in order today to just soak in the beauty of the Comma, butterfly, that is.  One of the earlier butterfly species to grace the skies in our area each summer many of the earlier arrivals we observed actually overwintered as adults. Some finding refuge from the winters freeze deep in crevices of a trees bark.

Some we found warming themselves collecting minerals from the moist soil on the forest floor.

Whereas others were often found feeding on the new growth of the trees and shrubs.
