Today my husband stopped all of his plans at my whim of “Honey will you take me to the butterflies?” God, I love this man!
For an hour and a half we watched hundreds of butterflies. My favorite I will post in this blog post separate from the others because they were just…EVERYTHING!!! Brace yourselves for the butterfly beauties….
She was on the ground. Hopping like a bunny rabbit. Her wings closed. Looked just like a brown spotted butterfly and then pop those wings opened. I crouched around trying to take her picture. My husband held his arms around my stomach so my legs did not fall as I was leaning over trying to take her picture. She glowed. Ahhhhhhhh. So much beauty.
Just as we were leaving we see this group of butterflies that I THOUGHT were mushrooms. I leaned closer and they were butterflies. They were stunning. All closed up and then a little flutter showed blue. Everyone crowded around my husband and me and this group of butterflies waiting to see if they would open up. One man said he waited 30 minutes for them to open their wings. I just asked! “Please open your wings so I can see the blue.”
While we were there the sweetest child was following me and asked his mom why I was talking to the little bird. Then why I was humming. The child seemed more interested in me humming and talking to the birds than the actual birds and butterflies. I thought that was so special.
Here are the clumps of wonderment!! Oh and they DID open their wings after I asked them to. Coincidence?
Simply magical. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
