  1. seems amazing that a butterfly could withstand such a season!. lovely contrast

  2. Testing times for the butterfly! It must have spotted some desert blooms! Nicely MMT!


  3. paused for what?? leaves me curious!!!

  4. Lovely. Made me pause mid flight too 🙂

  5. Pleased ’twas only a pause, not a full stop 😉

  6. I imagine the butterflies are having to look harder for nectar.

  7. Smart butterfly ~ great haiku ~ Happy Week to you ~ xoxo

  8. Being in a drought here (visiting) I was surprised to actually see three yellow swallowtails. Also some little moths,
    but that was near water sources.

    Adaptation. Animals and insects seem to fair well, most of the time.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  9. What a brave butterfly!

  10. Yes butterflies do that sometimes
