The First Butterfly Of 2021

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Sunshine And Sweetness 91120” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The loving glow of the new light washes over my mountain breathing life into the surrounding forest. Today was one of those special Spring days when the birds didn’t just sing in the morning but kept their jubilation throughout the entire day. They didn’t really come to feeders much but they were close by. Occasionally I see movement out of the corner of my eye and glance up from my work to see which one of my forest friends had come to visit but saw nothing. Bright yellow flash made me think that maybe the Goldfinch had finally gotten their warm season colors but I was wrong. It turned out to be a Tiger Swallowtail. The first Butterfly of 2021! It’s one of signs that I’ve been looking for. Now most years we get a little cold snap around Easter and sometimes it even snows. But don’t worry about the Butterfly. It actually has its own antifreeze and it will simply sleep until the weather warms back up which is usually within a day or so. But the sighting is a very strong sign that the days of warm breezes and green leaves are not so far away. There’s a few blooms open for her to feed on but if you want to make life easier for the early butterflies set out some overripe fruit. Butterflies are particularly fond of rotting bananas and oranges but they’ll come to just about any of the fruit that’s past it’s use by date. I wasn’t fast enough to get a photo this time so I’m using one from my archives.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me.
