Mourning Cloak


Morning folks…was out photographing all day yesterday and it was one great day here in New England! Photographed my first butterfly the year, a Mourning Cloak. Mourning Cloaks are one of the few butterflies that overwinter. Instead of dying or flying South, they stay here year-round. Mourning Cloaks do hibernate, they will find a tree cavity, or crawl underneath some loose bark to give us a jump start on enjoying Spring….Happy
