Friday's Foto

Even if you've never paid any attention to butterflies, no doubt this Spring you have noticed lots of these lovely Red Admiral butterflies fluttering about. There has been such a huge irruption this year that even the mainstream media has given it coverage. Some attribute the unusual abundance to this past Winter's mild weather. Others say that it is a regular 10 year cycle. Either way, there are so many around that even the birds have noticed and many are feasting on them.
