Conservation Corner: Butterflies in our Garden

IMG 0068picasabackgroundDSCF1386DSCF1258
 
Susan Bergen's Conservation Corner at March's monthly meeting featured butterflies that are common to southwestern Connecticut. They live in similar habitats but have different needs in terms of host and nectar plants. Some are active in early spring. Others make an appearance later in the summer. Most spend the winter right in our gardens as caterpillars or chrysalids. They are beautiful and fascinating. 
 
Take a look . . . how many different kinds will you see in your garden this season?
