Maybe Soon?

Today I saw a California Sister (Adelpha californica).
They usually don't show up until around the third week of September.
They were so named because Arthur Butler, a British entomologist who "discovered" the butterflies in 1865, thought their wings resembled a nun's habit.  I don't know about you, but I've never seen a nun wearing a habit that was orange, black, red, blue, gray and white...

 I'm hoping the early appearance of this California Sister means autumn will be making an appearance soon!
