“Butterflies are self propelled flowers.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

Butterflies are summer to me and I just love the Robert Heinlein quote above. As the air warms, I see more and more of them darting around on the air. They seem to come in all sizes and colours and tend to be a bit elusive when it comes time to photograph them. They sit wonderfully still, till it’s time to release the shutter.

I’m also discovering just how many varieties of butterflies and moths are native to my area of the world. I enjoy identifying the plants and animals I come across on my wanderings and am being more deliberate in the habit lately, as I see other bloggers whom I follow doing the same thing.
