On our National Butterfly Awareness Day, I have learned that Butterflies are cold-blooded insects that can only fly well when their body temperatures are above 70 degrees F (about 21 degrees C). So whenever possible, I step in my garden in the middle of a day with my camera, hoping to capture a butterfly or two.

No luck with butterflies this time but I can’t really complain… Honeybee is a lovely insect, too. 🙂
