Pixie and I were out for a walk this morning when I spotted a group of mourning cloak butterflies fluttering through the maple trees. They are usually the first of the butterflies to make an appearance in spring and what a treat it was to see them.

    You are so fortunate to see these beautiful mourning cloak butterflies! I remember seeing one of them several years ago on one of the trees that were blossoming in the spring but I don't think we have seen them return here since....You got an incredible capture and I love the selective focus.
