But then...

When was the last time you saw a butterfly?

Not one of those tiny little white ones that very well may be a moth, but an actual butterfly like a monarch or even a viceroy... a butterfly with a wingspan of at least several inches.... something with a pattern on it's wings. And not in a museum or zoo, and alive rather than dead on display. I can't remember the last time. It seems like we used to see them all the time when I was growing up. But then Tuesday, at an apartment complex in the Detroit Area, I saw one.... just flying about around a crab apple tree. I watched it for a while before I went in and when I came back out. It amazed me to see it, especially since the last time I do remember seeing a butterfly were ones in captivity in a zoo my family visited years and years ago. Strange.
