I have been daydreaming about butterflies and thinking about butterfly conservation. Mother Nature has apparently decided that I should not be wasting my time, and hit us with a snowstorm and some arctic weather.
We get “snow dogs” once in a while–a colored ring around the sun, similar to a rainbow, but caused by the defraction of the light off of ice instead of water droplets.
Butterflies will return to Iowa in a month or two. Until then, I guess I will have to deal with it.
