Friday's Foto

As Spring migration ends and local breeding birds busy themselves with raising their broods, many birdwatchers turn their attention to the seasonally increasing diversity of butterflies. While overlooked by most people (probably because of its lack of vibrant colors), the Cabbage White is one of our most abundant species. Since they fly from late February to mid-November, they are one of the first butterflies to be seen in the Spring and last in the Autumn. They can be found in a variety of habitats. This European species was accidentally introduced to North America.
