Country road driving,
Fluttering wings catch my eye;
Just over a week ago I was driving along the back roads from finishing some work, and the sun was shining, and I had my windows rolled down a bit to let the wind blow in gently.
Listening to the radio and glancing at the rear-view mirror periodically, at one point my gaze was immediately drawn to some erratic fluttering in the back window. I soon realized what it was and stopped the car – it’s a quiet stretch of road where I was – and went to investigate further. Somehow….not sure if via the open windows or when I had opened and closed the hatchback door earlier, this gentle creature managed to get inside for a ride.
I wondered how attached butterflies and moths get to their surroundings, for I may have relocated this one several kilometres further from where it had been.
In any case, I took some photos of this daring wanderer and then set it free….to flutter away in its characteristic style on the flow of the breeze.
