Echo Azure puddling on moist horse scat.

A whole herd of Reakirt's Blue butterflies on - you guessed it - fresh horse scat. Puddling is pretty common in the butterfly world. It's a way for many species to get necessary nutrients and amino acids.
One animal's scat makes another fat. Okay, that was bad. One animal's poop is for another to scoop. Possibly worse. If you've got a better pun, send it in.
