2. The 2nd is an Unidentified Flying Object. This tiny butterfly is resting on an Aztec arrowhead (Saggitaria montevidensis) flower. This poor thing seems to be injured as its wings are torn. I'm sure the little ant didn't do it. But then again, why not? Maybe it was Atom Ant who was undergoing some transgressions and became a villain.
Is this a gram blue or pea blue butterfly?
Update: My grateful thanks to Kanak of Terra Farmer for helping me identify the butterfly as cycad blue/chilades pandava.
This post is dedicated to Ms Noelle Johnson (Azplantlady) of Plant Tips and Guidelines for the Desert Garden from Phoenix, Arizona, USA. She was my first commenter for my previous post. I am very glad to know her through Blotanical. Through her blog, this qualified garden consultant has shown me how beautiful desert gardens can be. She eliminated many of my myths about greens in deserts and she gives great gardening tips.
This is my entry for Blooming Friday, 2nd Week of December. The theme this week is Remembering a Particular Event'. As I am having UFOs here, so I'll think of Star Wars, starring Yoda (flower) Han Solo (ant), Princess Leia (butterfly) and spaceship (bird).
