Madam Butterfly,

drawn by sweetly scented flowers,

bearing scars of battles won.
Bees drink the nectar too,
and the garden hums,
with the thrum of life.
Cheers to you from The Holler garden~

  3. These photos are stunning. I always like finding wildlife with a little tear or imperfection because it is a marking that helps me identify them for a future spotting. Beautiful post, Cindy. 🙂


  4. I followed you back from your comment on my comment on SwittersB’s post. Egads! You already have 152 comments on your latest post. I hesitate to add yet another, seeing that you take the time to address each one (laudable–I do the same), but your first photo here is nothing short of exquisite. And I loved your recent invitation to follow the path across the meadow into the forest. Difficult light conditions, though–I’d love to see what you could do on an overcast day! -Gary

  6. Now this is strikingly beautiful. Would you believe my 3 year old son caught a butterfly in his hand today as it was flying? He simply reached out and grabbed it as it tried to flutter by. Amazing these children …
