    Default B. Little Stars x C. aurantiaca

    The other day I noticed this to have opened, wasn't actually planning to take a
    photo since its just the first bud to open. Anyways, I saw this beautiful
    butterfly outside the netting which protects my plants from direct sun.
    Anyways it seems to be wanting to get inside the nets, so I tried to raise the
    net so that it could come in and guess what it headed directly to my new
    bloomer. I thought its a nice thing to take a photo of, so im sharing it here.

    Last time I saw a similar butterfly at my garden, some of my plants have ended
    up as dinner for the caterpillars. I'll be on a lookout for some just in case.

    Lovely, Randy! The butterfly on the bloom only adds to the beauty. (I hope you don't find munching caterpillars though.)

    Cheers,
