Butterflies Are Beautiful!!

Back in August,
 
I was lucky enough to spend several minutes with this beautiful butterfly.
 
I thought...
"how nice of this striking butterfly to pose on a purple flower"!
 
Sometimes, life is perfect...

sometimes not...
 
but it does not have to be perfect to be really good.
 
Whenever you need beauty, look to nature...
it's always there!!

  6. Wonderful shots of the Swallowtail butterfly. I've seen them this summer but none have landed long enough for me to get a picture. Lucky you and that little "torn heart" is just perfect.

  11. I just love butterflies. They are beautiful little works of art that float through the air and allow us to view them if only for a moment. Lovely images. Hope you are having a super day Debbie. :)

  25. Hi Debbie, I'm visiting from Clytie's GHT. It's so nice to see the purple flower and the butterfly :) It's nice coincidence for me to see your post today. This morning, I was practising stealth, photographing a brown butterfly hovering over jasmine blooms. :)
