Late butterfly

Today was mild and humid as it has been all week. Insects are making good use of the ivy flowers on the bridge, including a Small White butterfly pieris rapae, la pieride de la rave.

Today we went to the Mairie to snitch on the muskrats. They didn't seem to have heard of the new decree there, but we now know that our neighbour Eric Decharte is an authorised trapper and we can contact him to get them 'rehomed' (ahem).

Maybe muskrat fur hat will be the new fashion soon (lol).
I am amazed because I have seen muskrats in Aveyron but I have never seen one in the US.

They are very cute little devils!
