Small Tortoiseshell: Adults

by Dave McCormick

Caters I rescued from garden have pupated and now, I have 4 adults now. When should I start seeing them in wild again? I have only seen mid sized to fully grown caterpillars in wild in past week, not fully grown adults. Is it still a bit early yet?

Maybe it was heat in my house that sped up their growth?
