Finally a Monarch. Last year they were here late May. For ID of Appalachian Brown I used recent sightings photos on this site as guide to name this small, eyed, brown butterfly which perched most often with wings open. It flew very low near nut grass and sedge grasses that get into my grassy paths.

  • Azure, sp. 1
  • Appalachian Brown 1
  • Silver-spotted Skipper 1
