Gulf Fritillary

Gulf Fritillary
2009

A Butterfly Lights Beside Us

A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...
and for a brief moment it's glory
and beauty belong to our world...
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.

Lovely photo. I haven't seen many fritillaries of any variety this year.

Butterflies are dreams that come true... or just bugs with fancy wings... Either way, they sure are pretty!

I do so love to see butterflies, no matter how briefly they bring me joy. Of course I usually don't have the camera ready to enjoy them a little longer. Awesome capture of this golden treat.
