A warm 65F brought out my first glimpse of this year's orange tip :butterfly: :rara: !
About 2 hours later there was another one :eek:, or possibly the first one flying backwards :shrug:. Anyway, the OTs are here again :yes:

No holly blues (rarely see them anyway) but multiples of OTs (Americaspeak) and some SBFs too :).
