I'm sure you've guessed from the title what kind of butterfly I have here today for you. That's right, it's a red admiral butterfly, the first I've ever seen. I found this at the beginning of the trail at Five Ridge Prairie Preserve. I happened to see another one a few days later right in my backyard.
The really good news is that I made it back to Five Ridge and got to see very many new things I'll be bringing you in the next several days. I'm beginning to love that place very much. I can go on short hikes there if I want, and I can also go there for very long hikes. Flat land or hills. Forest or prairie. It has everything.
That's not the only good place I've been in the past few days though. There are nature parks all around me where I live now. Being here is a dream come true for me. Any nature lover would be in heaven living here. I used to think all there was here were cows. I was so very wrong, but we have those too.
Just wait 'til I tell you about my slightly terrifying adventure with Isabella. It came close to being a nightmare, but we both got out of it fine. It ended up as only amusing though. I'll bring that one to you as soon as I can.
A question before I go today. I recently signed up for a Google+ account. Google+ is like Facebook, which I don't have. My question is, what is it for? I read that I could use it to help promote my blogs, but it seems like I would have to write in it as if it were another blog. I don't want to do that. I already have blogs and I think I like blogging more than stuff like Google+. Am I missing something? Is there something fun there that I'm just not seeing, or are things like Google+ and Facebook just extra work?
