Finally a Butterfly
In years past I would see many butterflies throughout the summer seasons. I have hardly spied any this year. I still have all of my usual flowers and some vegetable plants to attract them, but nary a butterfly.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this Red Spotted Purple Admiral just hanging around some gourds. It is so perfect that it almost doesn't seem real in this photograph.
"Happiness is a butterfly, which, when persued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
