Mourning Cloak

 Mourning Cloak
Nymphalis antiopa
On the road here, April 20, 2015
2 Mourning cloaks mating, they did so for a long time, i watched them for an hour, i left before they did, most of the time they were standing totally still, by the way they braced their feet you could see they were alive. At one pointed the left one moved his/her foot and a few second later moved her/his wings slightly another few seconds it opened it's wings and left them open for a few minutes. 

I have looked out for the first Mourning Cloak of the season for a long time.
