A few days ago while babysitting my 2 1/2 year old grandaughter, Lilly, we had an unexpected visitor! We had gone out the front door for a short walk and when we came back in Lilly spotted it immediately. "Butterfly!" I thought it was outside because we often have lots of butterflies in our woods and around our house. But this huge Tiger Swallowtail was inside! Not sure how it got in but it was fluttering madly on the sreen door by the deck. Grabbed the camera and got several blurry pictures...this one is the clearest. Lilly insisted on being lifted up so she could see it up close, squealing with delight! I agree with her...butterflies are delightful, and so beautiful! I kind of like the screen in the background...gives the photo some texture.
And here is Lilly, our own pretty little butterfly!
