...and now, in butterfly news...

Time to push that scary spider further down the page. I try not to be a speciesist but spiders still shake me up. How about a butterfly or two?

We've got a lot of these right now. They are called Bordered Patch, and like Monarchs, they go for the Blue Mist like it's crack.

This is a chrysalis that was formed like an earring hanging from our stone kitty memorial sculpture. It has since broken open, and I hope it's because we have a new butterfly. This chrysalis belonged to a Black Swallowtail, which you can see in all its beauty here.

Butterflies will always beat spiders. I don't know why spiders even bother showing up.

Some of them are probably showing up to eat butterflies.
