Great Butterfly Day!
I had a wonderful day in the garden yesterday.
I saw a tiny blue butterfly flitting around close to the ground and decided that I would get a picture.
After lots of time up and down on my hands and knees, chasing it all over the yard, I FINALLY caught the little flirt!
A cute little Eastern Tailed-Blue. I never thought I would manage to get a picture of such a tiny thing. It is hard enough to get pictures of the larger butterflies. I couldn't wait to show DH when he got home!
Also had a male Monarch visit my largest Butterfly Bush. I got some pictures, but none good enough to post. Had a female on it last week and found one egg on my Swamp Milkweed! Woo-Whoo!!
Then, I decided to check some of my smaller Sasafrass trees and found this....
Could it be....could it be... a cozy little Spicebush Swallowtail hide out?
If so, should I bring it in to protect it from predators?
If so, how do I care for it inside?
What a GREAT day!!
Things are picking up!
