Missus Pottersblog and I found this butterfly dying in the grass. Beautiful, huh? We set it on the fence post because ants were all over it, but the wren family nesting nearby came over and grabbed it, leaving little wing bits on the ground. Nature, right?

Very beautiful. Better the wrens than the ants.
