A Welcome Arrival

I was just thinking that I hadn’t yet seen a Gulf Fritillary on the front yard flowers this season, and then, as if on cue, one made its arrival.

I think these butterflies are fascinating to watch, with their vibrant colors and eye-catching patterns.

The way the light fell in the photo below, combined with the blurred background of a shaded evergreen, gave the picture a rather dramatic appearance. It was purely accidental, but I must confess I like it!

Fritillaries…without a doubt are lovley…

…but their beauty pales in comparison to my granddaughter, Little Miss Miriam, who made her arrival this weekend as well!

I couldn’t resist sharing her picture too! And if my picture taking slacks off a bit, it may be because my hands are too full to hold a camera!
