Orange And Black Butterfly Lingers On My Hand

Orange Butterfly With Dark Spots
I saw a beautiful orange and black butterfly sitting on the floor as I was walking in front of my house. I walked up to it, picked it up, and put in my palm.
The butterfly did not want to leave. I know it was not injured. I placed it down and after a about thirty seconds it flew away.
What do you think this means?

Thank you for posting your question. It is often curious when butterflies seem to linger in our presence. I've told my friends many times that they are waiting for me to take their picture.
Of course I don't really believe that. But it feels good when they hang around.
I remember once I saw a butterfly on one of my walks in the park. It was very tiny and looked like a black butterfly with it's wings spread.
I did not want to spook it so I tried zooming in with my camera. It took multiple attempts to capture this butterfly in the lens frame.
And the instant I did, I took the picture. As soon as I got the picture it flew off as if on cue.
Perhaps one of my readers has a story that could help explain these wonderful butterfly landings.
I've taken the liberty to add three pictures to this page. You may recognize them from other pages on the site.
If you have a picture you would like to share, we would love to see it.
