"No garden truly blooms until butterflies have danced upon it."
As I was taking my little ones out this morning for a garden stroll, I saw two giant swallowtails engaged in quite a spirited dance in the pentas. Dogs went back inside (sorry, Pix and Giz), and camera came back outside with me. And oh, the joy! I have finally caught some of the dancing beauties in the Nikon. I don't know why it matters to me that I capture them in a still photo; it really should be enough that we get to witness such sights on Earth, shouldn't it?
"Butterflies are God's confetti,
thrown upon the Earth in celebration of his love."
Here two giant swallowtails dance in the red pentas. I watched them for some time, mesmerized by the sight. Every few seconds, they would whirl up into the air and seemed to actually embrace as they spun around in the blue sky, then they would flit back down to those irresistible red blooms. Again and again.
May butterflies dance in your garden today, and everyday.
