The butterfly is a flying flower, the flower a tethered butterfly.
Ponce Denis Ecouchard Lebrun
Once again, nature shows me how beauty appears in so many shapes and forms. The colors and details of the butterfly’s wings against the flower’s petals and color is amazing. The delicate legs and antennae, the curl of the proboscis which allows this insect to draw nectar from the flowers, all part of a little creature that we see float past on lazy summer days.
Doesn’t it just make you want to sit and wonder over the miracle that is our home?
