Ok folks, I had my first Cabbage Whites (Pieris rape) of the year today. I guess it is official butterfly season now.
Also today, a Morning Cloak (Nymphalis antiopa) was seen at Dansville SGA.
With the Cabbage White, my Michigan year list stands at 3 species.
The weather is not supposed to improve much over the next week or so. It seems species are at least a week to 10 days behind normal emergent dates.
