Lone Leaf Floats Around Like a Butterfly
Occurred on December 5, 2021 / Arkadelphia, Arkansas, USA
Info from Licensor: "My husband and I were going for our daily walk on a trail we use many times a week. It was an unusually warm day for December, in the ’70s. This leaf blowing around caught our attention. We stood and watched it for at least a minute before he thought to video it. When it came down low enough for me to touch it, I grabbed it thinking it was attached to a spider web or silkworm line. We are avid hikers and used to seeing spider webs and such in the woods. There was no line. I let it go and it followed me and then flew around erratic like a butterfly before landing. I picked it up many more times and tried to get it to do something and it never flew again. It was just a normal leaf, there was hardly any wind movement as you can see in the video. This was on a trail in Arkadelphia, AR."
