Ready For Take Off

TODAY, I HAVE BEEN SOMEWHAT TORN as to which image to post here.  If you remember, yesterday I went on another little “walkabout” and I came up with some really nice images.    There was one more water image that I am definitely going to post here but I think that it can wait for tomorrow.  Today, I wanted to share Jeremy with you.

Jeremy is a Question Mark Butterfly (Polygonia interrogationis).  The biggest question about Jeremy is why he is in North Idaho.  He was supposed to be living in the south part of Canada and east of the Rocky’s.   In our limited conversation, it was my understanding that he was unhappy about his living arrangements and that he was out one day and saw an article about Sandpoint, Idaho while sitting on the shoulder of a web user at a local Starbucks and decided that this would be a good place to raise a family.   I’m certain that he also said that he jumped a BNSF freight train and also that he wanted to get here and see the Pacific Northwest before the fire ants got this far north and ruined it all.  That part was hard to translate and is still a little fuzzy.

Jeremy is an outgoing kind of guy and likes to be the center of attention.  He is definitely “the clown” amongst his class and often times finds himself in trouble that he never intended to be in; or at least never intended to be caught in.   It is for these reasons though that Jeremy is a great model.   He does not get spooked by the extremely large creature with appendages nor does he concern himself with the black cylindrical object; both of which are crawling up on him.  He just stands his ground and delivers the biggest Polygonia smile that you have ever seen.
