I was invited to play 20 questions with the 24/7 Mom. Heather posted my responses in a little feature about painted Lady fingers. Check out her blog too when you make the visit. She hosts some great giveaways, writes about family life, and reviews products geared towards adults and children alike.
What I found so incredibly sweet is that her six-year-old daughter Katiana loves my nails and sits in front of the computer and looks through all the blog pictures. I hope she is charmed by this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly and that you are as well!
It was interesting to me how the shape of a butterfly with partially opened wings mimics the shape of the stems leading to their favorite flowers.
I don't know if many of you realize how close I am to garden fauna when I take my pictures. This butterfly did not seem to mind my attention. When I posed my hand close to her, she backed around and ruffled the edges of her tail against my fingertips.
She didn't fly away. She stayed and enjoyed the flowers long after I was lured by the bright colors of other blooms in the distance.
I will be back tonight with a manicure post.
Happy painting, ladies!
