First Butterfly Of The Season

Spring has officially sprung with the arrival of the first Eastern Comma butterfly (Polygonia comma).  I was excited to find this little guy at Fenner Nature Center last night.  I surmised with the warm weather yesterday that I might encounter a Mourning Cloak butterfly, one of the earliest emerging butterflies in Michigan, but I never saw one.  This was one was a welcome sight, nonetheless!
