butterfly 2

Yesterday there was a butterfly fluttering around this beautiful hanging basket.  You can see it in the second photo right near the top of the plant.  It’s the only flowering plant I have in the yard and I thought it would be high enough so that Ruby couldn’t play with any of the bugs it attracted.  Well, she saw the butterfly and was very interested.  And patient, she waited for it to come to her.  And it did.  And she ate it.  In one bite.  Fast.

And gross.  I mean, I know it’s the circle of life and all that but the poor butterfly had no chance.  She spied it, stalked it, pounced and swallowed.

At least she’s not allergic to butterflies.

Ruby's at it again!
