The butterflies are really starting to come back to Cape Cod. I saw this Little Copper butterfly on one of the flowering bushes on the Nauset Marsh Trail and then later on the same day, I saw it in our yard. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)
The Little Copper butterfly is a tiny butterfly with a wingspan of 7/8″ to 1 and 1/8.” It looks so different when its wings are extended or folded up as you can see in the 2 photographs.
Have you seen a Little Copper butterfly this year?
