butterflies






Butterflies always amaze me. I love their beauty and grace as they flutter through my lilac trees. I have never however seen butterflies mate. Until today. It is so fascinating. I have pictures to prove it. I saved these butterflies from the mouth of my cat this morning. How cool does it look? I know two posts in one day. But this is just something I couldn't wait to share.

ok, what you have there are a couple of them having butterfly private time...ahemmm...

Look like: Eastern Tiger Swallowtails

Hard to be 100% sure without a pic of their wings completely displayed, but looks to be a match.

Very nice. I love butterflies-we did that raise your own butterflies last year, saw gorgeous Pipevine Swallowtails in the mountains of NC and just simply love watching them. Cool.

Today

 I’m really struggling today. The weight of the world as a mom, wife, student, employee and unofficial counselor to many is weighing me down...
