Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Up Close and Personal

Sitting out under the gazebo on Monday, which was turning out to be a hot, sultry day in Louisiana - I was just sending a twitter update via my cell phone since the internet connection was null and void, when this decided to alight on my unopened Vanilla Coke. I was worried that it would take off before I had a chance to grab my camera on the other side of the can, but it hung out for quite a while, helping itself to the cool drops of condensation on the side of the can.

Beautiful butterfly. So huge!

Casey said...

Tell that butterfly that Coke is addictive and to stop before he gets in too deep. You know I speak from personal experience.

Sara Bonds said...

You get the neatest shots. What a beautiful butterfly. I can't believe it sat there like that.

Happy WW from Sara @ The Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!

I was caught without camera last evening, when stopped at a LONG traffic light, right outside the car window was a lovely Monarch butterfly hanging out on a really cool plant (weed).... if only my camera weren't in the house!

Your photo skills put mine to shame. I would have mysteriously ended up with a picture of my foot.

Oh, and is it weird that I am super excited for you to come home and have an Internet connection again? :)
