Sighting for April 6, 2014

This Cabbage White was my first butterfly sighting for 2014.

Difficult to believe - considering the protracted cold (and some 20 snowstorms) of this past winter and early spring - but this year’s Cabbage White sighting actually beat my first Cabbage White sighting last year - April 9th, 2013. My memory was faulty. It was two years ago, that I sighted my first butterfly of the year much earlier, again a Cabbage White, on March 12th, 2012.

The Delaware Nature Society’s Jim White actually saw his first Cabbage White mid-week last week in far northern New Castle County.
