"Blessed are the eyes that see the things that ye see..St. Luke 10: 23"

Blessed are the things,
Spotted with joyful wings!
One butterfly flew in a tree......
And stopped for eye to see!
© Poetry by me AJP

Now that we are getting warmer weather I am seeing a few butterflies ...This is the first one
of this particular species that I shot a picture of this year and it was on a leaf of an apple tree.
I have seen and captured it other years but I don't think ever in a tree before.
