Oh! Look I'm A Beautiful Butterfly!

For any of you that have children or grandchildren, you should be able to recall the above title saying. It is from Heimlich the Caterpillar in the Disney Movie "Bug's Life! Remember he was always eating and after they defended the evil grasshoppers, he managed to get his butterfly wings? I couldn't resist using it. This beautiful Monarch who was making its way to the south of the border must of needed a taste of sweet nectar before leaving for its next refuel of nectar destination. The Agapantha's flowers that are in our yard have become a regular stopping place each year that we have lived here (4) to feed themselves for strength. On this "LUCKY" day DH was able to be in the right place at the right time to capture this beautiful creature fluttering about and then all of sudden sitting ever so lightly upon the petals to drink. He was on the flower for almost 15 minutes before he joined the rest of the flight that were also feeding on the trees across the street. Isn't is amazing that the smallest of God's creatures are so beautiful to the eye and makes us appreciate all the wondrous life he has surrounded us with? Hope you enjoy.
