I hope you can see all the butterflies on this bush. They are on almost every flower. It's the most I've ever seen at one time.
Here is a new black one. Pretty, but I don't know what it is.
UPdate: Thanks to Maria in Finland I now know that this is a Mourning Cloak. Isn't that a fitting name? I love it when I find out the name of new one. Maria, thank you, again for taking the time to comment.
This is Raggedy Wings. He's been around for the past week. DH saved his life last night.
For some reason he flew straight into a bucket of water. PLOP! Right into the water. Then he just layed on the top like he couldn't move. DH grabbed him and put him on the deck railing so his wings could dry out. They dried and he flew away.
I had just read on the net that when their wings look like this it means they are old. Maybe he was near death and was trying to commit suicide? It was very weird how he flew right into that bucket of water.
By the way, did you know the average life span of a butterfly is just 2 weeks to one month? Hardly seems worth all the trouble they go through to be born!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
