Butterfly Moments


The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.  ~Rabindranath Tagore

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

~Irish Blessing

Diane – Your images are amazing. When I have more time I will definitely return and comment on my favs. Keep up the great work.

So very lovely.. both the dandelions and the butterflies. Haven’t seen many butterflies yet this summer. I wonder why.

Any flying insect typically freaks me out, but since I can’t see the insect body of these I’m able to tell you what a nice capture it is:-)

Lovely butterfly photos. I have never gotten a good shot of a b-fly but I hope to this summer. I have only seen a couple so far.

Holy cow, I missed a lot of days! Lovely shots of the butterfly – your dandelions are good for something. 😉
