Waiting On a Train

In my last post, I explained about standing around waiting for the train to pass so I could take some pictures of it. I spent my waiting time standing by a brick wall. As I stood there next to some beautiful flowers, something flitted right past my eye and caught my attention.
I slowly turned towards the flowers. This beautiful butterfly was just working away, sipping on these plants.
He never even knew I was there. I was wearing brown tones that day. I wondered if the butterfly thought I was part of the wall - lol! These shots aren't even zoomed in (except the last one) - I was this close.
I kept shooting until I heard the train whistle blowing behind me. Then I wished Mr. Butterfly a safe day and went and stood inside the train crossing arms and waited for my train to arrive.

Beautiful butterfly, Alice! And I love the train shots, too! Hope you have had a good week so far! Did you get your purchase yet? I forgot to tell you that it was going to have to be signed for. Don't ask me why I even did that...I have no idea, and thought it was really dumb when I realized that might make it difficult for you to receive. It was suppose to be there yesterday.
Hope you love it as much as I do!!
Have a great night and weekend, gal, and please let me know when you get it. It was sent USPS First Class.

Love ya lots,
