Subject: [NorWestLeps] First of season new generation Seattle California Tortoiseshell

--000000000000ecb2f2058c7c6f80
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"

When Seattle periodically experiences migrations of California
Tortoiseshells - Nymphalis californica, (maybe once in 12 or so years?) I
often wonder how many adults will find any of the few Ceanothus we have
here, west of the Cascades. That would be Ceanothus velutinus, or C.
sanguineus, I believe both adapted to germinating after our relatively rare
fires here, especially since the Indians were no longer around so much, and
no longer so able to keep burning the land to manage for Camas and Quercus
garryana - Oregon White Oak, among other things.

So I was pleased to see a California Tortoiseshell today, at 10:45 am at
the corner by my apartment, in the main commercial district of West
Seattle. While I didn't get a very close look, it evidently wasn't a worn
specimen that would have spent the winter, so would be of the new
generation. Its mom could have found its food plant, among the few to be
found in our Georgia - Puget Trough, or potentially have found it on the
east slope of the Cascades, with the butterfly crossing the mountains, but
I am guessing it grew up west of the Cascades.
