One Red Admiral Butterfly

I rushed out to water my hanging baskets this morning, I saw a red admiral butterfly alight on the flowers I was hoping to water. I stood for about ten minutes with watering can in hand just watching him. He went diligently from flower to flower extracting the nectar.

While I was standing there two hover flies and one bee came along. Until the time came when they all moved away. I was transfixed, it had been so interesting and uplifting.  Instead of feeling rushed, for the rest of the day the sight had made me feel calm and relaxed.
