I saw the first red admiral of the season on a rocking chair on the front porch - I love the way they perch upside down!
Red admirals are usually the first caterpillars of the season, and the false nettles are making new growth from the bottom. With the temps at 82 degrees today, they'll probably grow quickly and, hopefully, be tall enough to support cats. Of course, I don't even know if this is even an egg-bearing female, but I sure hope so!
You told me to get out that camera, Tony, so I made this picture just for you! :)
