Up Close with Nature~ Butterflies~

We sat out on our back porch the other evening and noticed our Lilac bush had visitors. It amazes me at times, how we are able to be so in touch with our surroundings and how each day brings a something new to learn and explore.

Peyton was amazed at how he could get so close to the butterfly. He immediately started asking questions and was curious about all kinds of things with butterflies.

We will probably learn a bit next week about butterflies. Here are some resources I may use:

I love butterflies. We are very fortunate to have migrating butterflies in our trees for a couple days during the fall on their way back down to Mexico. We love laying on our backs and watching them.
