Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. To see many, many more outdoor photos or to post some of your own, please visit her blog.
This photo is from a few weeks back. One afternoon last month, this gorgeous butterfly suddenly and unaccountably attached itself to the underside of our balcony railing and just sat there for a while. Stayed long enough for me to run inside, get the camera, come back outside and snap its photo before it fluttered off. Hard to tell from the shot, but it was a huge critter – about as big as my hand.
I know for all you people with yards and gardens this doesn't seem so special, but for us high-rise dwellers, it's pretty unique! Also reminds me of the summer that just fluttered its way out of here this week.
