Finding Shelter Of 2 images. I was sitting in my living room looking out the window when I caught a glimpse of this butterfly as it searched and settled for some shelter between rain showers. © Pete Hillman August 2019.

Worth the trouble of getting out of your comfy living room on a rainy day. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Indeed it was Irene 🙂 And do you think I could find the butterfly once I was outside? Oh no, it was so well hidden, and I had to go back inside, peer through the window again to get my bearings! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Oh, no! Well, I am glad it stayed in one place. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Very nice! I always ask myself how these litte insects can fly in the rain. Not only butterflies, but bumblebees too. Every time I see it I think the thick raindrops must let them crash! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Exactly my thoughts also.
