Tiny Wings

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Pearl Crescent Butterfly 92520a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

“Timy life is important life” I thought to myself as a slowly crept up on the little orange butterfly. The tiny wings were only about the size of a US quarter but intricately ornate. The cool shadows of Panther Mountain kept the little beauty busy slowly pumping it’s wings to circulate warmth as it fed. It didn’t really seem to mind the giant hovering above it edging his lens ever closer. The tiny butterfly is one of main pollinators of the asters which seem to thrive on my mountain well into December and sometimes into Spring. I look at how detailed the wings are and my science side marvels at how much those patterns help him hide from predators and my spiritual side thinks about how much care God put into designing his color scheme. Insects use more of the spectrum than we do. Their world is one of reflections and shadows and the highlights of the wings make the Crescent Butterfly resemble a flower pedal to the hungry onlookers. The little butterfly finally decides that his camouflage doesn’t fool me and deftly angles it’s wings and is lifted into the air now resembling a fallen leaf.

If God put so much effort into the tiny life in my lens how much more did he care for mankind?

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

The Courtship Dance Of The Crescent Butterflies

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Tag Along 52620” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The cool scent of water mint rises from the creek while I ease my way closer to butterflies. Their tiny little wings flex in unison as they pump the warmth of the sun throughout their bodies. They take short hops from leaf to leaf in perfect synchronicity as if they were physically connected. I have often compared a butterfly’s flight to a dance joy or raw wild freedom but today they dance to a different tune. Today, it’s a slow dance. The song is one that plays in their hearts as they lift off together. They turn in a slow arch and dip. Once more they land in perfect alignment and pause only long enough for three slow wingbeats. They rise once again and this time the dance takes the form of a figure 8 before returning to the same spot. The male has not wavered in his devotion. He’s matched her lead in every choreographed maneuver through the air. They continue to pump their wings in perfect synchronicity and then they lift off together. This time though the dance has ended and the lovers make their exit to enjoy each other’s company in private.
