Compton Tortoiseshell

  No pictures today, so I'll share one from earlier in the week. I was visited by a Compton Tortoiseshell butterfly, Nymphalis vaualbum. If I've seen one before, I didn't realize it. Compton Tortoiseshell

It's not out of its range or anything... I just don't know butterflies as well as plants. However, this one flew right past the window and landed on the deck. Hard to miss that!

A pair of wrens were also visiting. I hoped they might nest, but I guess they moved on.

In other news: Today was a great accomplishment! I finished Dead Mule Swamp Singer. I also edited, made yet another frustrating shopping trip, had one meeting, and did a tiny bit on the trailer. We are supposed to get a bad storm tonight, but then several days of good weather in a row. I hope to accomplish a LOT on Sunny.
