First Butterfly of the Year (For Me)

We have had reports of butterflies here in Iowa since the last week in February–unusually early.  I did not see my first butterfly until yesterday, however.

Yesterday I saw red admirals.  There were at least three, and they chased each other around the yard.  I even got a few photos.

I am happy to see them.
