Within the last week I have seen:
Eastern Black Swallowtail
Spring Azure
Red Admiral

So far no Monarchs, but that is OK because we have been so dry the milkweed
(and everything else but yard weeds) are late.  The Wichita area and much of
Kansas was completely dry from early October to late January, following a
very hot, dry July-September.  That was the second year in a row like that.
Hopefully this one will be different.
