Of all the coneflowers, in all the gardens, you fly onto mine

I haven’t seen many butterflies thus far this year, so a few days ago I was excited to be  treated to a wonderful scene on my garden coneflower.  This beauty alighted and fed for a long time, but she wasn’t alone as another little flying beauty was also admiring the echinacea.

The monarch and the bee had a bit of an aerial scuffle, but soon the bee moved onto some other tasty wildflowers and the butterfly was left to alight and feed for an extended period of time.

If you stop, look and feel nature for even just a short amount of time, you’ll experience a little, glorious heavenly shudder in your very soul.
