This morning I noticed our Dog Dixie, she's a Jack A Bee (jack russel terrier & beagle) kneeling down and I noticed she was looking at a Monarch Butterfly. She was gentle and never bothered it. Typically she eats bugs and chases them, but she must have known the beauty and gentleness of this butterfly and only wanted to help it fly. I picked up the butterfly by letting it go on my finger, took some other photos and then put it on a branch and it finally flew away. I think it was damp at first and couldn't fly.
