The First Butterfly

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.
