    Those flowers are on my list too. Seems like the bloodroot and hepatica should be up by now! I’m not so great finding and IDing the butterflies–that’s why I come visit here. So I can get my dose of lepidoptera.

    Someone at our arboretum just told me that all butterflies are moths but not all moths are butterflies. Is that really true? (I guess I could google that, but the question just popped up in my head!) 🙂

  4. Dutchman’s Breeches remind me of an upside-down human tooth. Hehe.

    Excellent flower and butterfly photos.

    We are searching for Spring here too.

  5. Seeing those photos just make me happy. This seemed like a long winter to me and I can’t wait to see flower and little leaves popping through the dirt.

  6. Excellent series. I have a warm spot in my heart for the Spring Beauty. And I searched in vain last year for Dutchman’s Breeches. Maybe this year!

  8. A Mourning Cloak flew right by me on a warm day last week, but I have not seen one since. It has been so cold the last few days that nothing has grown. Your gorgeous pictures make me want spring to come a little faster.

  9. Beautiful wildflowers you have in your area. The Dutchman’s breeches sort of look like teeth in your picture.

  10. What a vision to see all these blooming! Our little valley still has patchy snow, and there is almost no green to be found. You gave us a pleasant head-start here with your photos.

  11. I can’t wait for more spring beauties to make their appearance! Thanks for the reminder of what is to come…

    Spring beauties and Hepaticas should be blooming soon. We always found them during maple sugaring seson – which is now.

    I love that Mourning Cloak photo.

  13. @ EVERYONE – thanks for your kind words and I so can’t wait for more of spring to arrive! This is for sure one of my fave months!
    @ Bo – Moths are moths, butterflies are butterflies but what many forget are the skippers! Skippers are skippers and each group have their own specifics that make them what they are!
