Red Admiral Butterfly arrives and deposits an egg!

The first red admiral butterfly of the season arrived today. I watched her land and deposit an egg on some sprouting Pennsylvania pellitory that grows wild in my yard near the fence. I ran in to grab the camera. I found the egg but missed her!

The small green globe above my finger (cool fingerprint shot!) is a brand-new red admiral egg.
