For the bread of God is He which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world...St. John 6:33
A gentle giant
Posing with the sky
Is ne'er defiant
For one to fear
When it is a butterfly
Giving hope and cheer
To celebrate rebirth
Of the flowers on earth.
Poetry by me AJP
I shot this picture on September 4th, taken at a low angle so that I could shoot the butterfly against the blue sky...Most of the day the sky was dreary and overcast but it turned blue just as the Giant Swallowtail appeared around 4:30.
It made a good gift for my birthday on the 5th. ( As I am typing this I have turned
68...another year older...) Also timely for Labor Day.. I think how hard the butterflies work to pollinate the flowers on earth for us to appreciate and admire.
Thank you so much for the spotlight, Heather and for the birthday greeting!
