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

Turkey Run to Aspen Draw Trail 2 blogMoth? Butterfly? — Image by kenne

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.

Moth?
Butterfly?

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

Moth?
Butterfly?

 Unknown Spider (to me) On Rock In Sabino Creek — Image by kenne

Trying to name some of these insects and spiders can be a real challenge for this novice naturalist. Input is very welcomed. Most of the images were taken in Sabino Basin near Sabino Creek, November 18, 2011.
