One Day Butterfly

Aren’t we all one-day butterflies,
not aware of time.
Searching for partners or honey
until Death kisses us.
Then in his arms, tenderly rocked,
waiting for a new chance
to fly away again
and join the dance
of the one-day butterfly

— Mary Emily Bradley

Flowers Around The Pool August 2013Orange Skipperling Butterfly — Image by kenne

This butterfly is small with a fast skipping flight, with an almost blurred, wing beat, so it’s not likely you will find an image of the orange skipperling in flight. In looking for butterflies to photograph, currently skippers are the most common here in the desert. Although they are considered butterflies, the traits of large eyes and short antennae are different. 


Nature will bear the closest inspection.

She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf,

and take an insect view of its plain.

Sometimes I can waste more time
trying to identify things I photograph
and I did it again —
don’t know the name of this beauty.


This guy was very nervous
with wings fluttering so fast,
even shooting at 1/2000 per second,
it was not an easy capture.

I am a painted lady.
I am a glancing kiss.
I am a song of gratitude.
I am more than a face.
I am painted for pleasure.
I am delicate and beautiful.
I am your secret diversions.
