Sometimes I Can Waste More Time . . .   9 comments

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.

Ode To A Butterfly

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you hide in the shadows? 
Spread wide your wings, let your heart sing
And come dance with me in the meadow

Butterfly, oh butterfly, why do you fear? 
You’ll never stray, I’ll lead the way
Just follow the path, I’ll be near

Butterfly, oh butterfly, have you no hope? 
Drink of the sun, our life’s just begun
Thro time’s hills and valleys we’ll lope 

Butterfly, oh butterfly, dare you to dream? 
On our hearts we depend, shall we follow the wind
And consign to the fates grander scheme?

Capturing The Moment — Two Butterflies, Two Asters   Leave a comment

Hiking trails

dusty and dry,

as are plants

along their path.


wrinkled or cracked

exhibiting new personalities,

making more obvious

narrow-leaf asters  

in a dry

and rocky canyon area —

butterflies take advantage

of late fall nectar.

“Why Don’t We Do It In The Mushrooms?

No One Will Be Watching Us.

Why Don’t We Do It In The Mushrooms?”

Sing these lines to the Beatles twelve-bar blues song,
“Why Do We Do It In The Road?” — keep repeating it!
