Gulf Fritillary

At least it didn’t rain this weekend.

I spent several hours each day doing general maintenance around the yard. I’d sweep or prune or pull until I got tired, then sit down and read until I was ready to get up and start again.

This is a newly hatched butterfly that really didn’t hold still long enough for me.

It wasn’t one of the five cocoons I can see from my seat on the patio; I checked.

But as they are all over the place, some in rather unexpected spots.
