Today (Tues, Mar 23) was a perfect day here for early butterflies: temperat=
ure in the mid-60s, no wind, bright blue sky. Just a few traces of snow and=
ice. The only things missing were the butterflies! I left the house around=
1:30pm and toured both the Lightning Tree Reservation and the Ward Reserva=
tion in Andover. I did see a single wood frog in a vernal pool, but other t=
han that it was pretty quiet! Finally, at about 4:20 pm, on the way back to=
the car at the Ward Reservation I stopped in a very sunny place in the woo=
ds that faces west and found my first (and so far only!) butterfly of the s=
eason, an Eastern Comma: https://flic.kr/p/2kNyGEQ <https://flic.kr/p/2kNyG=
EQ> .

So I=E2=80=99m happy to report that the world has not ended!
