The other day, while perusing the state of my Brandywine tomato plant, I noticed an odd sight at the edge of the pot. There, in the dirt, were two, fully intact butterfly wings.
I didn’t flip either of them over to check and see if, you know, one of these wings is not like the other, but from the looks of it, they are the fully intact wings of two separate butterflies. The markings look far too dissimilar for them to be the same insect.
I’m puzzled by this development. What could have killed these in such a manner as to preserve an entire wing…or two? And why?
Where are Sherlock Holmes or Jessica Fletcher when I need them?
