I saw this guy flutter onto the driveway as I was backing out this morning, and naturally had to stop the car and check him out. He was cool enough to warrant going inside for the camera. After our photoshoot, he readily climbed onto my proffered fingers and I moved move him into the safety of a holly bush; otherwise, I'm sure he would have made a nice juicy meal for some passing bird!
