When I lived in the Philadelphia area we had a membership to the Museum of Natural History “To see all of the dinos” They had a section of the museum where you could walk through the butterfly cage. All kinds of signs saying do not touch. But if the landed on you it was hard not to.

Beautiful collection of photos Charlie. My oldest has a passion for butterflies. At my mother’s house, she has about half an acre where she had planted a number of butterfly bushes and other flowers that would attract them. Samuel would spend a whole day in the yard just watching them land. He was pretty good at identifying the different types. Thanks for bringing back a fond memory :)

Thanks Charlie for stopping my life for a brief moment to let see how beautiful life still is in this fast pace world filled with problems.
