Aloha Friday: Hunting For Signs Of Spring

At the beginning of last week, I spotted the traditional (at least when I was growing up) sign of spring’s arrival: a robin red breast. I didn’t get a photo, but when I was at the park with the boys during the first official day of spring, I spotted a butterfly. We had B’s camera with us, so I took it and snapped a photo.


Can’t see it? Yeah, it’s hard to spot. That’s why I began tip toeing ever so quietly towards it, trying to get a better photo. Be vewy vewy quiet. I’m hunting buttewfwies. huh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh.


Ok, this one used the camera’s zoom, but I thought I could get a better shot. So I inched closer and closer. I was amazed at how close I was able to get to the butterfly.

Wait a second. That’s a pretty ugly butterfly. All hairy and stuff. That’s no butterfly, it’s a moth! Still, that’s one cool closeup.


Ah, a face only a mother moth could love. Now, I might not have found a sign of spring, but I’m sure they’re out there. My Aloha Friday question is: Have you seen any signs of spring yet?
