I Break for Butterflies

Today I had an errand to run, but as I was going to my garage I saw a butterfly. So I went back into the house to get my camera, and took a few photos.

This is a red-spotted purple. It is not a rare butterfly, but it was a first-of-the-year for this species for me. Most years I would have seen them by July if not late June. For some reason I had not run in to it yet this year.

I have taken better pictures of the species, and this one is older and more faded than I usually see them. But I felt a strong obligation to get this photo, and I was glad that I did.

Some itches you just have to scratch.
