The Creature in the Woods Part 2

This morning, I was happy to take my coffee to the back patio with the dog. The weather actually feels like fall and the sky was gorgeous. I couldn't capture the red and blue streaks that leave me convinced that Mother Nature is a Cubs fan but I did my best.

Seriously, how awesome was that win? I'm so excited for the Cubs. They're not my team, but this win just gives me a little more faith in humanity.

And as I was about to go back in the house to refresh my coffee, I caught this out of the corner of my eye.

I thought it was a leaf, because there are lots of them swirling around on the concrete but lo and behold it was a beautiful little butterfly. So I got down on my knees to get a better picture. I was certain she would fly away. She didn't. So I put my hand near her and I was certain again she would fly away. She didn't. She hopped on and stayed put as I took about a hundred pictures and ultimately made her the star of her own Facebook Live video.

I set her down on a table away from the dog and mixed a little hummingbird food to give her strength and help her to warm up for her long flight to Mexico but she decided she'd had enough shenanigans and took off for the trees.

Good luck, little lady. Safe travels to you.
