Quite afew kinds of butterflies are flying already. Three kinds of swallowtails, Zebra, Tiger, and a black variety that I didn't get close enough to ID. The mystery from last week is a Goatweed Leafwing, and I've seen several more individuals in the last week. This is the only time to see them, so keep an eye out for a ST size solid orange flitter, with pointed forewings. The Spring Azures are plentiful. Another one I was able to ID is a Common Sootywing, not very colorful, but often seen on paths clustered on feces.
