A Butterfly

Tonight I actually had my camera nearby when a beautiful butterfly decided to make a visit to one of my hanging plants just outside our window.  I grabbed my camera and quickly went outside, trying to be quiet so I wouldn't frighten him/her away.  I stood still (in 95 degree weather, not an easy task for me) for it to come back around.   I was finally able to get a shot of him/her.  It's funny, but until you can see them up close, I would have never known that he/she had shades of blue.  They always just appear to be all yellow from a distance.

I have a butterfly garden in another spot in our yard, so I'm hoping he/she will tell their friends so we can continue to watch and enjoy their beauty.

I'll be back tomorrow with a few new photos of the bees!!  They have been very busy.  Make sure you tune in for the next adventure of the bees!!
