Sometimes an hour in the afternoon is well spent just chasing butterflies.

  2. Yes it is! And the total cost was just a walk from the house down along the river: I think the price was right.

  3. I saw butterflies like those when I was out hiking the other day. I didn’t get pictures though, and I’m so glad you did because they’re *beautiful*!

    Thanks!

  5. Excellent! I have the most awful time chasing anything that moves, and sadly nothing wants to pose for me.

  6. Sara,

    They are pretty little guys, aren’t they! I’ve seen them since early April when they were up in areas where the snow banks were still 5 feet deep. They are always a welcome sight though.

  7. Malcolm,

    I’m kind of feasting on the colors now because I know in another month and a half the color of choice will be white.

  8. Tabbie,

    I finally figured out what the distance is with which butterflies are comfortable. For these, though, I found some blossoms they seemed to like, moved to within range, stayed very still and waited until they came in to me. Bigger critters aren’t quite that easy though.
