Butterflies are flying!

I was out to the Beanery today in West Cape May to look for migrating birds.  I found only a few but in addition I found Cabbage Whites, an American Lady (pictured below), Spring Azure and a Mourning Cloak.  Then at home while gardening in the yard I saw Cabbage Whites and an American Lady.  Looking forward to seeing more soon.

Charity quilts

Charity Quilt #25
Not a great day for yard work or birding so I decided I'd work on charity quilts.   I was able to make some blocks and 3 quilt tops.

Cox Hall Creek WMA

Today I saw some crows taking on a Red-tailed Hawk while out walking.

Butterflies in the Spring

This is the first day I've had a chance to to out looking at nature for a while.  The forecast was beautiful with temperatures in the low 70's and little wind.  I though I'd try a new spot to see if any butterflies were around.  First, though off to Earth Day celebrations at the County Park and Zoo. Next stop was the Lizard tail Swamp where I saw some lizards, birds and butterflies.  New to me were Henry Elfin's which are in the Gossamer Wings family of butterflies.

Today I was working on fabric postcards for a swap for an online postacrd swap group - Art4Mail to which I belong.  The swap is Butterflies and bugs swap. I used some of my extensive landscape fabric stash to make them.  Here are my postcards.

Northern Gannets flying

Friday evening at about 7PM the NG's started flying down the Delaware Bay and around Cape May Point before turning and heading back north again.  There were still small groups flying this AM.

American Oystercatcher Fly By

While out on the beach this AM I saw an American Oystercatcher couple fly down the Delaware Bay.  I have seen them before over here but not very often.
