Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly


I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!
~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”

  1. Wonderful image Bonnie, I have tried and tried for a butterfly shot but to no avail, it’s just one of those things I can’t come up with. Your shot is beautiful, great work.
