In the meantime, I've been spending quality time outdoors - between rain showers. (It's been an unusually rainy July). On a recent hike, we spotted this eastern tailed-blue butterfly, who let me take her picture. We also saw a beautiful orange monarch butterfly, who wouldn't sit still long enough for a good photo, but flew around us for a good five minutes.
I hope you all have had a good July. I'll see you in August! :-)
