ID mystery

I saw this beautiful butterfly as we hiked through the woods in Newfoundland.

It took me awhile to identify it but I think that it’s a “White Admiral“.

I used this cool site –  IDNature  – to solve the mystery. What a rich resource for nature study! I wish that I had known about it when I was teaching.

If you have any nature enthusiasts around your house, be sure to check it out. You’ll be glad.


with love,
