Pet butterfly...

My totally awesome daughter was lucky enough to have a butterfly land right on her hand.... and guess what? It remained content right there for longest time... she finally had to MAKE it get off of her hand by scooting it onto the school desk on the porch~ after about a half an hour! (She was SO over entertaining me by that time.) I ended up taking 46 pictures of this beauty... yes, 46! I know.... BUT~ I have a good reason, some didn't turn out...and I just couldn't get enough of it... let alone the fact that it had the fastest little wings ever! This is actually the image I wanted to capture. Every time I snapped the picture, she would close her wings. Only a few turned out this pretty with a flattened, clear view! Of course, my daughter got pretty frustrated with me and lost interest after the first 20 pictures... "enough already!!!!!"

Hopefully, you can't see all the dog hair on the porch runner! :)

Happy day!

Hi, you commented on my blog so I had to see who you were. Nice blog. What do you do? Where did you hear about me? Fun to hear about the butterfly. Did you know they love rotten bananas? We went to a butterfly farm and they would eat it right from your finger . . . .

Hi Christina,

I love your butterfly picture and how neat that it stayed around long enough to take the photos.

Doghair!... made me laugh as I know all about it when we had our dogs.
it has a habit of going everywhere.

enjoy your weekend
