I got a delightful rush of excitement releasing this butterfly. I left it on the newspaper box on the way into Lizard's Thicket to have lunch with my parents and grandmother, and when I came out afterwards, it was gone. I was surprised how thrilling it was to realize that someone found it - I so rarely wait around after I release them, and it felt special to realize that it really went home with someone.

I think I will hide more in books. It seems like it would be a wonderful surprise, or an opportunity for a blog reader to have a treasure hunt.

Butterflies took a road trip with me to Charleston today, and I released three in the downtown area.
I am still trying to balance my desire for photos with a (so far) stronger desire to be sneaky and subtle. If any readers have experience with this situation, I would welcome advice.

I am finding it a challenge to photograph some of my butterfly releases! I am trying to be sneaky, and the past few days, that means I have dropped and ran instead of staying to photograph. So Lizard's Thicket, Belk, and a couple of public parks acquired a butterfly...and I promise to get photos of the next releases.
