The last few days, I have driven to sites to look for butterflies. Today, I stayed home, to work outside and saw a few butterflies without even trying. The Tortoiseshell is my new favorite butterfly. I've never seen one before and they are so pretty, beautiful shaped wings. Saw 10+ Fritillaries, but only this one up close enough to ID it, the rest would not land.
