Success at last! Before today, I’d seen three butterflies this year but haven’t been able to photograph or identify them. All three were orange; one was in the woods and two were in the field.
Today, I saw three Spring Azures (Celastrina ladon) at the lake. One was on the trail near a pool of water. The other two were drinking along the lake shore. All were quite skittish.
But I managed to stalk one and got a photograph.
