Jonathan's Butterfly

Jonathan, the next aspiring photographer in our family, grabbed my cell phone to capture some images of a butterfly that visited the flowers on our back patio. I believe this is a swallowtail, at least that is what we called it when I was young. It spent quite a bit of time trying out all the flowers around the patio.

It is that time of year that I love when I can go out and sit on my patio in the evenings. I guess that is why I'm not getting much else accomplished. I come home from work and sit on the patio. Eat dinner on the patio. After dinner I sit on the patio and talk wit Sherrie or the kids and enjoy the cool evening air. I have a hummingbird feeder and two seed feeders so we get to enjoy watching the birds come and go. Last night I had a strange intruder, a Chihuahua. He made he way through the fence into our yard (I'm not sure why - I'm not sure dogs have reasons for escaping from their yards except that they want to escape). I stood up and he realized I was bigger than he was so he skeedaddled back under the fence into his yard. I put a piece of wood over the hole. I guess I need to add fixing the fence to my "urgent" to do projects - otherwise I might find landmines in the yard or worse yet, flower beds dug up.
