Sunday Stills - Things with Wings

I'm behind in participating on Sunday Stills.
This morning I started out to walk the pups. The corner house has a full front yard of wild flowers that usually attract a lot of bees. As we walked passed, I saw a pretty butterfly -- big colorful wings. I wished I had my camera since this was a good opportunity to participate in the Sunday Stills Challenge. I continued to walk my dogs and about 30 minutes we returned to the corner and there was the same butterfly -- touching softly on all the flowers. I hurried the dogs home, grabbed my camera and returned to the flower bed only to find the butterfly fluttering away across the street and over the roof tops. It left behind a bunch of buzzing bees and one sort of like a butterfly/moth in it's place. I took it's pictures as seen here.

Thanks! Kathleen, the butterfly/moth was more like a dark purple/brownish color. I was playing around in Photoshop and I enhanced the color to bring out the purple in it.

How long can such beauty last when it is just  barely hanging from a vine?
