From the Garden

These pictures are from yesterday, but they could have been from today; the days were nearly identical twins. Temperatures to 85ish, some, but not oppressive humidity, and blue skies.  I even saw this Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) butterfly in the garden both days, or one very much like it.
This is my first sighting of this butterfly this year, and it chose some rather unphotogenic backdrops; in this case, the wet blacktop of our driveway seemed to be its target, sipping some moisture.  I was surprised to see this fact in its entry in
Cannot survive coldest winters; most of North America must be recolonized each spring by southern migrants.
So, did this one fly in from Mexico?

Can you spot the frog?
