The Butterfly

Today was a beautiful day here.  Low humidity, perfect temps, sunny skies....and also - THIS!  I was out on the patio and this lovely creature flew right in front of my face!  Carefully, as I always scare them away, I stood very still and managed to get a few photos...following it around for a good ten minutes.  Just had to share this beauty with you!

 "Awaken to the universes simple gift of the butterfly.  Watch with fascination and joy as a jeweled treasure glides by and gently touches your soul."
K. D'Angelo

 "Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if
you sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
Nathaniel Hawthorne

 "Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
Hans Christian Anderson

 "Butterlies are self-propelled flowers."
Robert A. Heinlein

 "The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity."
George Carlin

Wishing everyone a safe and beautiful tomorrow.

I have always loved butterflies. In long ago Japan, the butterfly was the symbol for "Hidden Christians".

Oh, Pat! Absolutely gorgeous. That picture is just begging to be stitched, isn't it. Silk thread, I think.

I have never seen a butterfly like that. He is so beautiful and looks like his color was painted with metallic paint. It was a blessing to see him, and then to capture his beauty in pictures.

xx, Carol
