Saw my first zebra longwing yesterday and two or three giant swallowtails. I have been seeing some sulphurs pretty much all winter, along with some monarchs.
Seeing a zebra this early is very good news. Some years after a hard freeze I won't see them until late May or early June. Last year I had bunches and it looks like this year might be a repeat.
Could be a great year for the butterflies. I'm going to send some up north for those of you in northern climes.
