These butterflies were beautiful to watch and a little heartbreaking too. As Little J and I walked along the beach we came across them, just a few inches from the water. The top butterfly is protecting its partner, who is lying injured and dying underneath. It would rest on top for a few moments, and then fly around us, desperately trying to distract us away from its mate. Their deep connection was a treasure to witness.
