Spring sights

There are warm spring days when I know what to look for. When it just starts to warm up after winter, I head for my back yard to look for Mourning Cloaks, one of the first butterflies of the season. The first sunny day it hits 60F or so is a likely day. Mourning Cloaks bask on sunny spots on the ground (easy to spot) and on branches (much harder, unless you see one land there).
