The one at noon was not a perfect specimen, but it would do.
I first found these things in 2008 by accident. The most I have seen in one day is eight (in 2008), but in subsequent years I have only seen two or three. Since they appear every year, there is a small colony here--the only known one in Canada.
Common Wood Nymphs came out this week.
Today I also saw Gray Comma and Great Spangled Fritillary, firsts for the year.
