This is a rarely glimpsed private moment in the life of two butterflies. We've planted butterfly bushes that have grown and grown until they are almost 8 feet in diameter. This morning they were loaded with all sorts of butterflys. My DD caught this shot of two of them mating on a morning glory leave, against an old log. The process seems to go on for awhile - they flew away in tandem.
Mom to an 20-yr-old. After 10 years of homeschool/unschooling adventure she's now working her magic in college. Following a 15 year stint in the corporate sales world, I've spent the last 11 years as an online bookseller with my pup Chewy (Chewybooks on Amazon, Chewyboo on ebay), previous to that I managed a bachelors degree from a radical college, built a small greenhouse 2 years ago and 500 gallon rain barrel system last year.
