I have been waiting and waiting for Margaret to reach this little developmental stage. I did not expect it to happen on the beach. I guess it shows you never know when things will happen. I am glad I was prepared. Here is a link to John's and Clara's!
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
