Longtime followers of my blog know I enjoy butterflies. At times they appear to be beautiful wildflowers brought to life, dancing from place to place with sunshine bringing out their sparkling colorations.
A mid-summer day in a wilderness alpine meadow is the best place to experience the magic of butterflies. But, I enjoy seeing them on my outings in urban nature parks and backyard too.
On a warm, sunny springtime day, butterflies can be found almost anywhere flowers are in bloom. I sometimes see them competing for nectar with bees and even hummingbirds at times.
What a nice time of the year.
