Well worth the effort Christa, the photo is awesome!

On one of the hotter, drier days, I was able to coax a black&white butterfly to land on my wet hand, repeated the attempt with Claudia who was beside herself to have a butterfly land on her hand. We watched it have a nice long drink before moving on.

It's real Phil, you should see the attempts at getting their photo, I had to delete about a 100 duds, I was waving my iphone all over the place.   They are so fast, and I think they were up to funny business, that's the only reason they hung around.
