BUTTERFLIES

Butterfly
SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLY

Butterflies

meadow fairies

sprinkling golden dust

upon eyes that seek

magic.

SMALL COPPER I nearly stepped on the flower when I was walking in the fields taking random photos.  Happily, the wings fluttered and that made me notice this little butterfly.  It is about the size of a nickel and therefore, is so easy to miss.  But isn't it pretty up-close? :-)

Flowers spray fragrance

angling for lover’s kiss like

butterfly whispers.

 Butterfly whispers

wake up the flowering fields

into summer dreams.

PAINTED LADY This butterfly is a bit bigger than Small Copper.  When I reviewed the photographs that I took of this butterfly, I was surprised to find that at a certain angle, the markings on the wings looked like a sketch of a face.  I guess, now that I said it, I have to upload a photo with the funny marks. :-)

Chasing summer dreams

children run about carefree

like the butterflies.

swallowtails

Fragile fading wings

resolved to gather nectar

what noble warriors.

BLACK SWALLOWTAIL I had a rather interesting time figuring out what this butterfly was because its wings are faded and broken.  PArts of the wings have been torn that some of the markings were also lost.
