To my utter, utter shock and bewildered delight I turned to find this absolutely dazzling gift for my eyes to behold in my own backyard! I was out taking pictures of our Billy when I happened to glance over to see this beauty just hanging out on a bush. Quickly I snapped a few shots before it floated away with a friend. I never thought I’d see a butterfly this spectacular outside of the butterfly exhibit we attend each year, especially not gracing our yard with its glory!
