The Hitch-hiker

As I worked in the garden a while back, a gulf fritillary butterfly came and landed on my pants leg. I stood very still and took a picture or two. After a while, I decided to go on with my work.

To my surprise, it hung on…

It stayed with me (on me) for over 10 minutes while I walked around picking beans and cutting flowers. A nice encounter!
