Butterfly Bonanza: Up Close and Personal

March 28th, 2020 by Michael Dyet

Hmmm, just sit back, breath deep and enjoy the beauty.

In times such as these, unprecedented times when the world seems to be unravelling, let us escape for a few moments of wonder. Bask in the breathtaking beauty of nature. Minimal words.  Stream of consciousness. Just enjoy.


Simply stunning. I remember the first time I spotted one. My heart stopped. Literally. You had to be there. It is a nature geek thing.


The butterfly or the flower – which one is the subject? Does it really matter?


Suspended in space. In time. A miniature stingray in a sea of green. Can you see it? Keep trying.


Perpetually picturesque. Never takes a bad photo. Not ever. Trust me. I have tested the theory.


Silver on earthy brown. Flashes of orange. A puffball of white filaments. A moment in time, which may not ever come again.


A volcano of colour. Erupting from a palette of grey. Wait for it. You will see it.


Spangled glory. Beyond words. An infallible sense of how to show itself off.

Beauty can be a contagion too. No social distancing here. Get up close and personal. It is allowed.
