Blood Puddling Butterflies

Watercolor on paper.

I was inspired to paint this after reading that butterflies will drink blood from open wounds or pools. This is known as “puddling”.

I kill those agonizing bedbugs with relish, but I would let a butterfly drink out of one of my cuts in a heartbeat just to watch it happen. How superficial of me, I know.
