I was basking in the sun this morning,
watching the Hackberry Emperor and the Hummingbirds while I finished writing my ceremony for the plants.
I had rescheduled my pedicure so I would be free all day.
The American Snout came to my toes.

She was looking for salts.
I laughed.
A butterfly pedicure.
It kind of tickles.

Oh, Sherry. Only you could capture a butterfly nibbling on your toes! This made me giggle!


Deb said...

How adorable !
Who wouldn't want a "butterfly pedicure" :-} especially from such a pretty butterfly!

Q said...

Hi Mary,
This was so fun!
When the Snout first came I had the telephoto lens on the camera and I was not able to get photos. I quickly went in and changed lens hoping the Snout would return for more yummy salt.
Sure enough! I was "butterflied" tickled for at least 15 minutes.
Made me laugh too.

Hi Deb,
This could be a new "Spa" treatment!
I have often thought of inviting the butterflies into my house. I love it when they land on me and we have one on one time. The Snout is new to me and I was so pleased to have upclose time.

Happy New Lavender Moon, Q :-) How great to have a butterfly pedicure! I have never experienced this! Your pics are wonderful as always.

Q said...

Dear Chris,
Happy New Moon to you too!
As you can tell I am into the butterflies now! Not that I do not love the birds but these are butterfly days!
Next I will be out in the gardens, weeding and mulching and harvesting!
I am so ready.
I want to get everything cleaned up and ready for re-do!

Hi Cathy,
So glad you come by.
The photo essays are fun for me to do. Always nice to know others enjoy them.
As you can tell I like birds, bugs and blooms!

What an unusual visitor. I have never seen one before. I bet it did tickle, but what an honour...butterfly kisses..and on your toes yet...!

Q said...

Dear Sheila,
I thought of you and your daughter, at the Spa, while the Snout was playing Hearts on my toes! It would be fun to have butterflies flying about while one was getting a pedicure.
Butterflies do land on me! I am somewhat used to it. The Snout is new in my yard so it was fun! Plus I was sitting quietly on the deck writing and so I was able to really enjoy "butterfly kisses".
Bird songs, butterflies and blooms.
I like being outside.

Oh I love that butterfly pedicure. And I thought I had commented and said so. But I guess I didn't. -sigh-

Well, better late than never. :-)

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I just never know what Mother Nature has for me!
This was very fun.
I need lots of fun and giggles right now.
