On the wings of a dilemma….

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:35 am by aleksan

A cold day, and there is a butterfly at the bottom of the window. A Peacock Butterfly, the sort that likes to winter indoors. I decide he can stay there for the winter if he wants, but he starts to flutter. Dilemma: should I open the window and let him fly into the cold north wind or not? If I do he may not make it. I open the window, but he stays put with closed wings – so I close the window….Soon he is fluttering again, more so than before. I open the window, and this time he flies out rapidly blown away by the wind. I hope he finds a crevice in a tree or a shed to survive the cold, and I wish him well.
