Hubby Bob cuts my hair and has for 25 years, At 9:30 AM
he said" lets cut your hair before it gets to hot outside." (we stand in the back yard so the hair is not in the house). it takes about 10 minutes and I have been known to whine.
" To Hot, To Cold, My leg hurts, My back hurts, are you almost done????"
Sunday morning I had no idea how long it took because I was totally enthralled and thrilled with the aerial show I was watching.
We have a palmetto bush bigger than a pickup truck at the base of a 60 foot tall pine tree, under that tree there are 4 hibiscus trees, all over 7 feet tall. All of that covers one whole side of our yard.
As I stood with hubby snipping away, the trees and bushes were alive with movement (no way to get better photos, but you get the gist of it with these)
Can you find the butterflies?
this is the tree they loved the most, could not catch a photo on it.
the thicket was alive with butterflies, It was hard to count them, as active as they were, but I think about 20 of them, fluttering, flitting, flying, falling through the air with the greatest of ease. For some reason they like the palmetto fronds. No flowers there, I am thinking maybe the pollen falling out of the pine tree was the bait.
A Live Show For Free, what could be better?
OK, so I cheated on the below Photoshop Re-Creation.... but you can use your imagination
