December 20, 2009 Day 25 Dog and Buttterfly

December 19, 2009 Day 34 Monarch wants to make snow angels

Today while feeding the butterflies, one escaped. It flew to the natural light at the window and stayed for a while.
I wondered how the snowy world looks to a butterfly. Watching it, I sensed both longing and playfulness, though it was probably my own. The contrast of a butterfly on a snowy day was new for me.

(Update: We had a total of 14 inches and blizzard conditions later that day!)
