Yard butterflies. It warmed up to about 70 today and I saw a few butterflies flying. A fun discovery was a Monk Skipper caterpillar in a rolled tent on my areca palm, one of their many known palm hostplants. You may not realize it, but palms are grasses! Monocots anyway; and Monk Skippers are grass skippers!
