  1. My second husband, a storyteller beyond comapare.had this four-story tale, told many a time, begiinig with a ‘papillon’ . . .

  2. Great shot..great colours…just wish we has seen more than the 6 butterflies we have this season. It has been very worrying the changes to our environment…the lack of insects so the lack of birds and so on.

    • Thank you very much, David! I understand. We didn’t see very many butterflies this year either. It was a noticeable decrease from last year. Hopefully it’s not too late to turn things around for the environment.

  4. Papillon = French for butterfly – thanks, I’m going to be multilingual! “Schmetterling” we say in German – and my cat has no name for that birdy insect – but she likes to catch and destroy God’s artwork with no respect; the same fate she offers to any dragon-fly / Libellen, if such helicopter comes into paws’ reach of my high jumping cat garden beast!

    • thank you Fergie for your dragonfly excurs – I have to apologize for my cat, that she has no respect for those wonderful pre-helicopter souls! P.S.: I think, they had no trouble with the Fukushima power plant disaster! (But cats, dogs, human beings…)

      • Thank you for the German lesson, Frizz! Your cat sounds very nimble. It looks mean and vicious, but kitty is acting from instinct. Our neighbors’ cats are attracted to the birds in our yard because we have many feeders. The birds are my therapy, so I help protect them from kitty instinct.
