Blues for the Great Southern White

There is something melancholy about the Great Southern White butterfly with its turquoise-tipped antennae. Perhaps it was today’s gusty wind that made photographing the butterflies difficult. Perhaps it is the Great Southern Whites appearance in great numbers foretelling summer is coming, with the summer heat soon to follow. Perhaps this prophesy of the hot and humid future is its preternatural misfortune. Regardless, the Great Southern White is nice to see flying haphazardly around the landscape like these individuals in the Audubon House pollinator garden at the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area.
