This is completely off topic but Sam would like to share a few closeup photos we took of a butterfly this past weekend during our afternoon in the Sangre de Christo mountains at Sipapu.

I have never had the opportunity to see a butterfly this up close and personal before.  To be still in the moment and observe as the little butterfly nourished himself with sweet nectar.  Moments like these are truly wondrous.

  1. Beautiful! And seems to fit right in with Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom to me … gf moms are still living the good life, right? 😉 Gorgeous photos and please tell Sam thanks for getting you to share them with us! 🙂


  2. Lovely! The last one is spectacular.

    I posted the turkey pastrami recipe today.

  3. Nice shots! They can be so hard to catch sitting still, it must have been really enjoying its meal. Nathan says your butterfly is a type of 'hairstreak' butterfly…fyi!

  4. Lovely! I am enamored with the fuzzy featheriness! I've always been a huge fan of butterflies.
