Flutterby

"We ordered calamari and two glasses of pinot noir, and I asked the waiter to get something for the butterfly."
A Red Admiral butterfly takes a shine to a journalist. The full article and the one-page print version. (Links to Washington Post, via Digg.)

Speaking of butterflies, I googled for Indian butterflies and landed on this great-looking site. (And there she is, the Common Emigrant. Countless happy hours were spent chasing them, the Joker and the Sailor.)

That's a lovely article. I am curious about Gregory Richards's experience though - three consecutive summers? That's 3 generations of butterflies?

Red Admiral's lifespan is about 10 months, so that is 3 generations. Blows the mind.
