I'm thinking of getting a lifeguard certification. Except for I don't really want to be doing the mouth-to-mouth thing on the creatures I rescue. That would be pretty hard on something as little as today's pool catch anyway.
I practiced the finger-lift rescue operation this time.
I took the butterfly over in the sunshine to let it warm up a little and dry its' wings.
But you know, a lifeguard's duties only extend so far, and I couldn't stand around all day holding this butterfly while its wings dried. So I figured I'd put it somewhere else to finish drying off.
And what could be more appropriate than to put a Black Swallowtail Butterfly onto a Black Knight Butterfly Bush?
So there I left it, a little bedraggled to be sure, but it's got all the amenities a butterfly could wish for!
