Yesterday, as I made a diligent attempt at writing on the porch, out in the open exposed to the wild distractions of spring, this beautiful thing crossed my path.
I have always wanted to take pictures of butterflies, but they have always been so elusive and flighty, never lighting in a convenient spot. This beautiful thing settled on the rocks of our porch as if to show off just for me. The colors are so incredible.
This is what spring is all about.
More spread and show…
I watch in awe…
It fluttered its wings, revealing the orange-red spots on the underside of its wings. What a stunning contrast to the vivid cerulean on the outside.
This small wonder made my already perfect day.
And of course, you already know this just made my little piece of heaven truly perfect.
May it bring you joy.
