Mourning Cloak

My first sighting of a Mourning Cloak was many moons ago at the LA County Arboretum in Arcadia. Yesterday was the first time I'd ever seen this beauty here in La Cresta, flitting around my herb garden and also on the Spice Bush (Calycanthus occidentalis) in the planter on the north side of the house.
