Butterflies are nature’s angels.
They remind us what a gift it is to be alive.

Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly Art — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Thou winged blossom, liberated thing,
What secret tie binds thee to other flowers,
Still held within the garden’s fostering?
Will they too soar with the completed hours,
Take flight, and be like thee
Irrevocably free,
Hovering at will o’er their parental bowers?

Or is thy luster drawn from heavenly hues,—
A sumptuous drifting fragment of the sky,
Caught when the sunset its last glance imbues
With sudden splendor, and the tree-tops high
Grasp that swift blazonry,
Then lend those tints to thee,
On thee to float a few short hours, and die?”

— from Ode to a Butterfly by Thomas Wentworth Higginson

Butterflies And Desert Flowers After Monsoon Rains   2 comments

Surphur Butterflies on Creosole Bush Blossoms In Sabino Canyon (July 27, 2021) — Images by kenne 

The recent monsoon rains have greened up the canyon, bringing out a lot of butterflies.
Unfortunately, I only had my 18-70 mm lens, so trying to photograph
the mostly surphur butterflies became challenging.

More sweat in the morning walk

Wildflowers near the road

Attracting bees and butterflies

Shadows from tall pines

Passing rain clouds

Scatted drops hit the ground

Ravens on the wing

All’s right in the mountains.
