You'll just have to imagine me running back and forth after these little guys. I felt lucky any time one of them would stay still more than a fraction of a second. I've had better pictures of butterflies, but I don't know if I've ever had more fun getting them.
I guess when I'm home for a little too long I get kind of discouraged. I just imagine that I'll never see anything but endless grassy fields and cow pastures. Those can be interesting, but sometimes monotonous. I forget the forests and rivers and other fascinating things that are only a few miles away from me. I keep trying to tell myself to remember that.
I know one of these times everything will clear up and I'll be back out exploring nature all I want. Then I'll get a chance to explore that new place. I hope I'm not disappointed in it. It looks like it has the potential to be like the little parks I used to visit back in Michigan.
But I can find things like these butterflies just about anywhere. That's the beauty of nature. You can just go right outside your door and find something good. that's easy to forget when you've been inside a little too long, so make a point of going pout. I'll talk to you next time.

I don't know that I have much to say about the butterfly. I haven't had time to check and see what kind it is, but it does look familiar. I've posted about these little guys before and I think I've identified those back then. I'll tell you just what it is next time I get one.
I was chasing butterflies from plant to plant. Most of them were too fast for me. I got the video because the pictures were getting hard. The video did a good job of keeping up though. I'll have to take a look at my other butterfly pictures to see if there's anything that's good enough for another post. I'll have to have at least a small story for it though. I'll talk to you later.
