A New Butterfly

I drove up to Little Falls, Minnesota today.  I was able to get out and photograph butterflies today.  One that is a very long shot that might be possible here is Oarisma poweshiek.  That would be huge, and I did not see anything resembling that.

I did find two that were new to me, however.  The one I will feature today is the common ringlet, Coenonympha tullia.  It does seem to be somewhat common and may even be expanding its range.  But we have extirpated it from Iowa.

    She’s a beauty, I’d be very happy to meet her for the first time.

    Ah, to bad you didn’t find any! You’ll have to make the trek up to Manitoba. 🙂
