She alighted on Kathryn's green clad arm, stayed for a minute, then carefully made her way over to my lucky friend's stomach. I photographed the sequence but after a few minutes, Kathryn wanted to move on and attempted to move the clinging butterfly. She climbed on Kathryn's hand and stayed even though Kathryn gently shook her hand.
