Watched this PBS Nature episode last week. Beyond inspiring, it got me to thinking.
Unlike living in a temperate climate, there’s not a single day of the year that I don’t watch butterflies in the subtropics. Like the birds, different varieties come and go with the seasons. A few types stick around all year.
With a house full of sliding glass that’s open most of the year, I can watch them unobtrusively and
- quickly notice any new arrivals
- enjoy observing new interactions
- renew my sense of wonder
They connect me with nature in a way not much else does. And I would be less rich if they were gone.
