the best shot -but-great to see my first lep of 2017 today here in NS where temps for spring have been below normal.These were abundant and had 1Hoary Elfin today 29-April-2017 at Pockwock ,Halifax Co.
Wow, great record, Laurie!!
Very nice Laurie! I wonder I wonder if you know how to add this as a discussion? Just above, the white box, see " + Add a Discussion". I you click on that and add the picture and give it a title then we can comment on it. I'm no butterfly expert but I was trying to match it to a Comma but can't seem to. I was wondering if this was a Compton Tortoiseshell, which I have never heard of? I did lighten it up quite a bit.
EDIT: sorry Laurie I didn't notice you had already ID'd it.
Hi first butterfly Mar 29 2017 2:52 pm in my work shop. Compton Tortoiseshell run to the house to get my camera it was in the window wend I got back what a surprise.
This little guy waited patiently for me to get a good picture, Thanks! I don't know much about butterflys, yet.
Hooray, Chris!! I've been looking and looking.........
Good stuff, Chris!
My first butterfly of the year: a Mourning Cloak 14 April 2016 along the road opposite Kent's Building Supplies, Fredericton.
I was just reading where over three-quarters of the UK’s resident and migrant butterfly species have declined in number and occurrence over the last 40 years. The reasons are not known but it is thought that habitat loss, climate change, and pesticide/herbicide use are factors. Lots of butterfly census work done in Canada in recent years, but I can't seem to find a link on the numbers and comparisons in species population numbers with respect to region. Perhaps the Maritime Butterfly Atlas publishes these kind of stats? Thanks in advance for a link.
