What is with all these yellow butterflies!!????? We have never seen this many before, or have we??? That's my question, is this normal??? Normally we are here in late March and are surprised by seeing them everywhere!!! They were even out in the "bay" of Happy Bay today!!!
There was a story in the DH about them the other day. Said there was an unusual amount because of additional rain in October or November, when they were growing, as there was lots of new vegetation for them. We noticed a lot of them at the end of December also.
Some years more, some years less. I have seen them so thick it reminded me of snowfall. We lived next to the bush area at Red Pond for years and a couple of years the amount of them were amazing. Just another wonderful nature thing to see on the island!!
