Butterflies and Wisteria

| June 24, 2013

Today I got to see for the first time a butterfly unfolding and drying out. I wish I had gotten to see it emerge from its cocoon but I was a little late. My cat was very interested too, but thankfully I was able to get the butterfly to climb on my finger so I […]
