While visiting a local wildflower garden, I spotted a white butterfly.
It can be difficult to identify whites to species because the color varies, sometimes between seasons. The one above is likely a checkered white.
March 14 was National Learn About Butterflies Day.
If you’d like to celebrate all week, try:
- The butterfly and moth activities at the Growing with Science website.
- 5 Fun Butterfly Activities at the National Wildlife Federation (some of their links are broken)
