I am happy to report the first spotting of a butterfly in the garden.
It is a Great Spangled Fritillary/ Speyeria cybele.
It was happily sipping from the Butterfly Weed flowers.
This type does not startle as easily as some, so I took numerous photos
until my camera battery died. Hi Ho.
I am glad I braved the heat to check on my garden this first day of June.
