This butterfly shadowbox features a Mourning Cloak butterfly, which is usually one of the first butterflies seen in spring. This is due to the fact that many hibernate in the winter and will emerge from their hibernating spots on an early warm spring day. The common name, Mourning Cloak, refers to its resemblance to a traditional cloak worn when one was “in mourning”. Makes a nice set with our other American species the Monarch and Tiger Swallowtail.
