Town: Kosciusko State/Province: MS Country:
Temperature was in the high 60s and sunny. I saw a solitary butterfly feeding in a bed of blooming white paperwhites and yellow daffodils planted under a tree in my yard. My yard is about the only one around me with anything blooming. Because it was the first butterfly of Spring that I've seen I got my binoculars. At that point I identified it as apparently a monarch. I went in for my camera, and I was able to get up fairly close for a shot, BUT alas it flew off and up into the trees before I could get a picture. It flew in a northerly direction. I waited and looked for it to possibly come back, but did not spot it again. I Googled and did not that there is a mimic to the Monarch, but I don't know if it is found in this area.
