    Jeff Gaskin tells me that Kirsten Mills saw a Lady (identity uncertain) on the top of Mount Tolmie on Thursday.  Butterfliers are encouraged to visit the tops of our hills where butterflies often hill-top in the late afternoons to see if there are more ladies, and, if so, which species they are.  Mount Douglas, Mount Tolmie, Christmas Hill and Highrock Park are obvious places to try.
