SCVN Nature Walk 08-08-12Two-tailed Swallowtail — Image by kenne

Breezy zephyr sweeps the fields 
And the thistle sways and yields 
But the butterfly clings fast
As a sailor to the mast 
As a banner iu the blast 
Which when widest sweep its folds 
Firmest still its proud slave holds

— from Butterfly and Thistle by Julia Ward Howe
