First Fritillary of the Summer


    We got our first Great Spangled Fritillary of the summer at DeKorte at 1:30 p.m. today, at the Jill Ann Zimkiewicz Memorial Butterfly Garden. 

   Last year we didn't get out first one until late August — and it was news. Click here for details.

   Too bad it wasn't here on Sunday for the butterfly walk.

   Tomorrow: Full report on the butterfly walk, with a great pic of a Painted Lady.
