Butterfly lands

Surely not more than a week ago I wrote a post about butterflies. It was about how they didn't land.

And so I couldn't photograph them.

This may have been sour grapes from someone with a whirring and whizzing camera who wanted nothing more than to take eight million pictures of any butterfly who would just settle down and... let me.

I did come to the very mature understanding that butterflies fly because they can and, wouldn't you?

I was so much older then.

The butterfly has landed!

I took eight million pictures of this butterfly.  I hope you don't mind if I show you all of them.

That's two.

Okay, it might not be eight million. But I hope you can feel the excitement.

I honestly have no idea why this next one is my favorite, I mean, the flower is IN THE WAY!

I'm not sure what our count is, 400 so far?

In this one the butterfly is, actually, I don't know. But look! It's a butterfly!

And finally we come to picture number eight million. What a journey! 

Leave your name below if you viewed all eight million and your prize will arrive in six to eight weeks.

  1. They're all wonderful, and your favorite (how can you choose a favorite?) is especially nice, but I'm partial to the very first one. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a butterfly "head on" like that!


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
