Butterflies

On the Argentinian side of Iguazu falls, there were quite a few butterflies flying around. Because I had eczema, I have quite a bit more dead skin on my body than most people (not visible), and it seems the butterflies like to munch on that stuff, so they were landing on me while I was walking on the path out to the main part of the falls. I think at one point I had 3 butterflies on my arm, all different species.

Veronica took a bunch of pictures of me with the butterflies, including some close ups. When people were walking by they would also see, point, laugh, and take pictures in awe. I felt like some host on a National Geographic show because I was showing everyone who wanted to get closeup views.

There was even a tour guide that was showing a Japanese couple a single butterfly he had caught on his hand when I walked by with 3 and the couple looked at me instead. I chuckled.

The butterflies were beautiful.

Butterflies sitting on you because you have a scent of a flower and they know you are a good person who won't try to catch them.
