We don’t see a lot of butterflies here in Southern California. I’m not sure why, but it’s something I’ve noticed ever since moving here over 25 years ago. I miss the swarms of butterflies that exist in places that have seasons, like the dozen or so butterflies that were having lunch on the flowers across from the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac in Quebec City earlier this week. I could have spent an hour chasing them around. Unfortunately, I only had a few minutes, but they were an enjoyable few minutes.
