Butterfly sighting

Was walking my dog Bronte down Point O Pines road, between Stone Lake and Spider Lake, and had a Compton Tortoiseshell float right by my face. I stood there in awe, watching for awhile as it flew away. It's 55° today and there is still snow on the ground, so I wasn't expecting to see that! Such a nice surprise after such a long winter! Happy Spring everyone!
