Dandelions and butterflies

I went on a wheelchair stroll around the neighborhood and I stopped to look at these flowers. They were the perfect match of colors, lavender and yellow. Just wild flowers on the side of the road right across from my house. I suppose most people would think they were weeds like dandelions and treat with good ole weed and feed and they would nolonger grow. But then had they done that I would have missed such…wonderment. 


Had I not stopped I would have driven right past this precious, and I mean precious penny size butterfly. I don’t know if it even WAS a butterfly it was so small. Then I noticed there were actually 2. One on a dandelion puff and one on the ground. My camera would not focus nomatter what I did because they both were fluttering so much.


I took a video just as she flew away. It truly is in the smallest things that I find happiness.

  3. The butterfly is a small tortoiseshell; host plants for its caterpillars are common stinging nettles. In spring the adult can be found a number of flowering shrubs, and like your specimen on all manner of lower flowering flora. Your specimen is on the common wild daisy, not dandelion. A few links for you to check out:
