I did not notice all the color this butterfly possesses, nor the markings on its wings – my eyes are not what they used to be. It was wonderful and amazing to see the detail in this photograph once I zoomed in and cropped it in a photo editor. I am not a professional photographer by any means, but I enjoy the shots I do get with my Canon Rebel DRL I am enthralled by the magic of nature and its wide variety of life forms. I enjoy nature, but I am not a scientist – I do not know what species of butterfly this is, but it is pretty. There were a lot of these yellow butterflies visiting this summer. Fall is well upon us and soon winter will spread her white cloak over all. Every season is beautiful, but I do look forward to seeing these winged beauties once again.

  1. Beautiful! And I love the quote.
    I was fascinated to learn recently that a caterpillar doesn’t change gradually into a butterfly the way a tadpole turns into a frog, but at some point the caterpillar turns to liquid (!) and the butterfly is then created from the liquid. The butterfly was an ancient symbol of Christianity, and it was pointed out to me that Christianity isn’t merely the reformation of our old self, but a death and resurrection.

    1. I did not know this – wow! A liquid? Interesting! Life itself is such a great mystery, a continuous cycle of renewal. I also did not know the butterfly was an ancient Christian symbol. Lots of food for thought here! Thank you.
