Well, the snow is all gone…at least in most places. Despite the few remaining patches there are butterflies out and about, including one of my favourite groups – the elfins. So far there have been reports of Brown Elfin, Hoary Elfin and Eastern Pine Elfin, and our other three species, Bog, Western Pine, and Henry’s, are undoubtedly flying too. The weather looks good next week, so make sure you get out to see these early fliers!
