Blue on blue

From this angle, he looks somewhat brown, but this is a beautiful blue butterfly.  I was hanging out laundry and turned around, and there he was.  I ran down the hill in the back yard, across the deck, through the dining room, through the kitchen, through the entry way, through the car port and to my car, opening the trunk, retrieving my Nikon, running back through the car port, into the house, through the entry way, through the kitchen, through the dining room, across the deck, back up the hill and...SHEW!  He was still there!  So I took about a bajillion pictures of him and chose this one to share with you.

So pretty! I found one of these butterflies in my yard a couple weeks ago. I saved him and gave him to my mom to display in her classroom case full of other dead animals. I meant for that to sound a lot nicer than it did. ;P
