While the pipevine I found hasn't put out many leaves yet, I saw some butterflies and finally saw one at rest and not flitting all over the place high up in the trees.
I tried to be still to get a good shot of this guy, but it knew I was there and ran away as soon it got in the clear.
Eating a mushroom.
Maybe juvee or female I don't know.
Blurry, but clear enough to ID.
A large flock with one guy having trouble figuring out how to get over a fence.
one of several that hang at around my house and near the carport.
First up in that area though a lot of rosettes without flowers yet.
Just a few the cattle missed.
Beginning to leaves showing both male flowers (catkins) and female flowers (small red flowers near leaves).
Beginning to leaf out and put out catkins.
It was still cool so it wasn't moving much making for an easy picture.
I am pretty sure it is a southern species, though we have both northern and southern here.
Just saw the flowers and small leaves, but no butterfly so far.
