This has been quite the year for butterflies so far. Seems like every day there's a new visitor to the yard. Or two. Or three.
Today's visitor: Milbert's Tortoiseshell.
It doesn't look that impressive closed, but when it opens it's very distinctive:
We've now spotted in our yard all three tortoiseshells that are found in Minnesota (Compton's, Mourning Cloak and good ole Milbert).
