butterfly eating & out

I was worried about the butterfly..
he had not eaten for days...I gave him honeywater...pearjuice...he didn't drink
Which I thought might not be very good.
Finally I succeeded in giving him sugar-water dropped on a violet.
His long tongue opened up in&on the flower....drinking ...from the sugar-water and also nectar from the flower.

As the sun became very bright and warm inside,
he became fully awake...restless fluttering against the window.

I opened the window...
Immediately he ceased this window of opportunity...
and off he was...

How clever you are, and how beautiful these photos. I love your concern for animals.

This fills my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Oh, Henny, what a beautiful shot! A feast for the eyes! Isn't the Creator's color palette amazing?
