So, you have probably heard of Nature-Deficit Disorder, coined by Richard Louv in The Last Child in the Woods. How about Advanced Naturalist Disorder?
I believe that is what happens when you know just enough to be dangerous and you look at everything- plants, birds, dragonflies...

and butterflies- even when you are attending an outdoor wedding. Its not my fault, if they wanted me to pay attention they would have held it inside!

We arrived about an hour early and I entertained myself bird watching and butterflying. I did put my binoculars away when the other guests arrived.
This was one of the simplest, yet most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. The sun was shining in a cloudless blue sky as the waves splashed the rocks just beyond our seating area. Lake Erie was picture perfect and as beautiful as any Caribbean wedding ad.
