Southern Pearly Eye
I saw my first palamedes swallowtail of the year yesterday, and while I was in the woods today, I saw a southern pearly eye. I got this picture -
It kept fluttering around wildly, so I had to stand pretty far away from it and use the zoom on my camera, which makes for a not-so-good picture. Cane grows up the road here, just to the north, so I suppose the strong north winds blew it here, and the poor thing is confused, Still, it's a rare treat to see one.
