A Butterfly Proboscis

When we released our butterflies today Owen set his down on a dandelion. When he did that his butterfly started to drink nectar with her proboscis (tongue). We got a picture!

    This is a wonderful picture. I love to watch butterflies curl and uncurl their proboscis, dipping it in and out trying to find the nectar.
