House of Butterflies

Butterflies are self propelled flowers. ~R.H. Heinlein

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

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

Maya Angelou

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

  1. Absolutely stunning photos! I adore butterflies. It always makes me a little sad that their lifespan is so short, but they’re such beautiful and mystical creatures they can’t help but leave a lasting impression on your soul. You captured that beautifully! Thanks for sharing them!


  2. Evolution has given the one in the first pick two valuable assets to protect itself from predators. Naturally the color is good camouflage. The large circle is to represent a huge eye which makes predators uninterested because it must be from a huge animal not in their food manifest. It scares them. They love rotten fruit. It’s fermented. They get drunk.


  3. Blogher is handing me your posts in reverse order… 🙂 These are lovely, I think the first one is the best, beautiful bokeh. The simplicity of the third one catches my eye as well.
