I followed this butterfly all over my yard. It was especially attracted to this dark orange lily. As it busily sipped, I clicked away, taking picture after picture. I think that the saying “Butterflies Are Free” must be true, at least they are very reasonable. As long as I didn’t interfere with it’s nectar dipping, it allowed me to be a pest and take it’s picture, until I was satiated, however the butterfly was far from finished and spent half a day feasting on my Spring flowers.
