Over the past few days, our backyard, which is surrounded by a field and woods with wildflowers and grasses, has become flooded with butterflies. The kids are amazed by how many they are and we spent nearly an hour this afternoon watching them. Lucille chased them and tried to eat them, but I'm happy to report she did not get any. The kids suggested we become "nature photographers" so we grabbed the camera and got a few shots in. Our next step is to pull out our handy dandy butterfly book and identify these little beauties!
