We are having a lot of the same butterfly visitors in our garden, so to make things interesting I tried to catch these Pipe Vines 'in flight.' I also tried to beat some of the summertime crazies by having the kids hunt butterflies in new ways, too. I let my oldest daughter use my Nikon coolpix (shockproof as well as waterproof), and asked the younger two if they could do some sketches. My daughter was awfully proud to get....
this picture of a Silver Spotted Skipper!
My other girls made lovely sketches of butterflies around the butterfly bush.
And then they went back to wild craziness.
We visited the local bakery for an after dinner treat
because I needed some chocolate.
It was one of those days.
