It seems the lepidopterans are ready, they are beginning to emerge from their various states of overwintering and become a little more active. We were camping at Huntsville State Park last weekend and we noticed several species out flying but I wasn’t able to get photos of any but this question mark, Polygonia interrogationis. The three of us took a 7 mile hike around Lake Raven and I opted to put my 75-300mm lens on for the duration of the hike just for this reason. Plus, it alleviated my need to bend down and take flower photos. And while I wasn’t able to get any other butterfly photos I was quite happy that this sweet butterfly thought warming up on the side of the tree for a few minutes was a good idea while I paparazzi’d it.

Onward to more butterflies—and soon, monarch season!

    It’s interesting that a blogger I follow from Virginia just posted a photo of his first question mark of the year. I’ve only seen one in my entire life, but now that I know what they look like, I may see more.
