I can't stop taking pictures of butterflies (and a couple of bees, too.) I'll spare you the rest - for each butterfly, there are at least five more photos. The reason is twofold - first, I'd like to identify who comes to our garden and second, they're so pretty. Maybe we'll add a new photo display somewhere in the house . . .
