I have a good excuse for taking so long to post these butterfly photos I promised last week ...
Most of these butterflies have flitted off to more colorful lands..
I'm glad I captured them when I did!
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."
"If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies."
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly."
"Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough."
"There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly."
Richard Buckminster Fuller
"Butterflies are self propelled flowers."
"We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever."
"How does one become a butterfly?" she asked. "You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar."
