Butterfly Tickles

Maya saw the shadow of this swallowtail fluttering
at the top of our friends green house,
she jumped out of the pool to get a closer look
and surprised us all as we watched it fly down into her hands!
She placed it on her nose to say hello of course :o)
We talked about how her missing "tail" probably saved her from a predatorShe then found a lovely flower to place her butterfly

A moment like this, shared with a butterfly and my little girl...precious
