It was a monarch butterfly, who proceeded to land on their backyard wall to warm his wings in the sun.

Immediately, Mochi ran over to greet him. the face of a brick building © Rylee Boland Though Mochi is typically a rambunctious pup, she seemed to understand the delicate insect would prefer a gentler sort of welcome.

"She was so sweet and did not want to hurt it," Boland told The Dodo. "She is very well-behaved and has the kindest heart." a dog lying on green grass © Rylee Boland In return, the butterfly lingered well within sniffing distance — sensing, perhaps, that the curious little canine indeed meant him no harm.

"Both the butterfly and Mochi were so calm I was able to snap a bunch of pictures," Boland said. a close up of an animal © Rylee Boland This adorable interaction lasted for about 15 minutes, after which the butterfly took flight. He even landed briefly on Boland's hand before continuing on his way.

It was a shared sense of kindness and trust that made the sweet scene possible that day — qualities in Mochi the world could always use more of. a person holding a dog © Rylee Boland Boland, for one, didn't fail to see the beauty in the time Mochi spent with the butterfly — a time during which the world, for a moment, seemed just about perfect.
