Admiral of the Day #2022

While Pearce and I took turns bouncing and wobbling on the slackline, this admiral came to greet Laurel several times. He perched at a distance first, allowing Laurel to creep closer for photos, and eventually landed on her blanket, where the two made contact. The moment I grabbed my camera he flew away, but Laurel coaxed him onto her hand yet again; she clearly speaks some hidden language beyond my understanding.

The Admiral had a tear in one wing, though he still seemed to fly soundly. He comes from a haggard past; let’s wish him a softer future.
