Mourning Cloak ~ Camera-Critters #215

We've had some absolutely amazing weather lately.  It has truly been beautiful, and there is definitely not a present need for gel fuel fireplaces with the warm, sunny days we've been having.  

I haven't had the chance to get out much for photography during the week, as we are at a hectic time at work.  However, I do try to get out often during the weekend.  I've even got a "lifer" photo already this year, and I was very excited about it!

I photographed my very first Mourning Cloak butterfly.  It was sitting right next to the steps of my front door... just like it was waiting for me.  I photographed it, and then it flew.  So, of course, I followed... and followed... and followed.  Yeah, I think I followed this beauty around for about a half hour.  Meanwhile, my dogs watched me with that, "Yep, Mommy has lost her mind again!" look on their faces.

Purdy butterfly. I've seen a number of them around here lately. Almost as many as I have seen in the past six years combined.

That is a beautiful picture! How lucky. I'm glad my pets can't tell the stories of what I do. I'm sure they'd call and have me committed.
