Friday's Foto

For birders in eastern North America, the arrival of the phoebe is the first sign of Spring. For those of us that love butterflies, it is the appearance of Mourning Cloak butterflies that signals Spring's transition. For nearly everyone, though, it is the emergence of the first Spring Crocuses that warms the soul with flickering optimism that we can finally pack away our heavy winter clothing. This year Spring officially arrives on March 20th at 12:57pm EDT, but I wouldn't put my winter coat in storage just yet.
