Really nice, Walter.

One of these days I need to go butterfly hunting with you so I can add to my collection and learn some more about them.

Nice Walter, especially the azure. So what's happening at Rosetta MG? Are there any flowers or blossoms? Are the orioles back yet?

Thanks Paul.  Any time you want to go, just let me know.

Thanks Howie.  Very busy bird-wise early on Saturday morning.  Also had two Cabbage Whites and an American Lady on the Daffodils today.  Daffodils and the usual early spring flowers are what's in bloom at present.  A few Pansies are planted but that's it.  We did have a couple of nice sightings of Hummers today.  One was at a group of daffodils for several minutes.  I wouldn't rush down just yet.

Thanks Gary.  I was just shooting away at every butterfly that I could and it wasn't until I got home that I realized that I had three different Comma species.  At the time I thought that they were all Gray Commas.  The Gray and the Green were Lifers for me!

Walter :)

I should do the same....any Commas I see, shoot! Maybe I'll get lucky too. Good strategy.
