Tiger Swallowtail on Echinacea

Where do butterflies go when it rains?

I don't know the answer to that, but I know that this little guy was ready to play only minutes after a huge summer storm ended. He seemed to enjoy being photographed. He posed again and again for me.
I'd just spent two hours in an art museum seeing fine art, but you know what? This butterfly was the most beautiful sight of the day.

This little painting has been honored to have been featured in an a couple of Etsy treasuries (collection of art and vintage items) The most recent one celebrated Oklahoma art in a collection called Homemade Oklahoma..  Click "Flutterby Butterfly" to enjoy another one featuring butterflies.

    This is a beautiful, vibrant painting! I think your opening question was rhetorical, but ... I have read that when it rains, butterflies seek shelter on the underside of large leaves and in small protected crevices. The rain can damage their wings. Wouldn't it be fun to go searching for butterflies under leaves in the forest during a rainstorm :)
