Visited By a Butterfly

My husband and I were sitting outside this evening, and a butterfly landed on his hand. It stayed there, and even let him wave his hand around. It stayed so long that I finally ran in to get the camera.

I didn't get a good picture, and am not sure what kind it was. We imagined that if we looked it up, the description might say "remarkably friendly butterfly." It finally flew off, but then came back and landed on his foot.

Again I didn't get a good picture. So it was a friendly butterfly but not photogenic...because of course it must be the butterfly's fault if I didn't get a good picture.

It wasn't a Gulf fritillary butterfly, but the passionflower vines are blooming down by the pond, so we should be seeing those soon.

We should also see whatever kind of butterfly this little fellow is going to produce. (I'd look it up but I'm too lazy today.)

I'm hoping for a good butterfly year...

  1. I can't believe that butterfly wouldn't cooperate and let you take a good picture of it. I guess that's how I would be if I were a butterfly.

  2. They're just obstinate that way! It's too bad -- he seemed like a nice fellow otherwise :->.
