Butterfly romance!

[Skipper butterflies mating on my shoulder] I was in the back yard pruning the star jasmine when something came buzzing through the air and smacked into my shoulder.

It turned out to be two skipper butterflies, locked in what I can only presume was an amorous embrace.

Dave got his camera and documented the scene: butterfly romance photos.

They stayed on my shoulder for another 20 minutes, imperturbable, while I continued with yard work.
