My instinctive response for this challenge was to post pictures of the persons I love most. I would plaster on my wall the faces of my husband and children. Yet, after some thought, I decided that there will be other chances to show off those beloved faces (which I have been posting here and there in the last months or so).
While mulling over a suitable response, I reviewed my photo adventures from last week and saw these butterflies. I understand that they are called Cabbage White Butterflies.
One afternoon, I decided I would try my luck anyway. I followed one flying from the flower garden to the brush behind our garage. Lo and behold! I saw five of them hovering about the blades of grass. I thought I found their home.
I was fascinated by the butterfly that was, from my view, asleep as it remained still on the leaf it was clinging on. I smiled to see her friends, at first just one of them, and then both, flew to her as if to wake her up. “How sweet,” I thought. “The flying butterflies wanted the sleepy one to fly with them.”
But when I looked at the photos on my computer monitor, I saw Sleeping Beauty’s upturned body. Aha! Could something beyond waking up Sleeping Beauty be going on? I do think that they were more than being companionable. I think …. that… they are friends …. with benefits. Chances are, in about six weeks, there will be more Cabbage Whites in our garden. :-))
