Fragile Beauty

Butterflies are fascinating and fragile insects.  They are one of the most beautiful creatures on earth.  It always amazes me that they can live,  propagate, and migrate far distances.  Their wings are so thin you can almost see right through them, yet they have such an artistic design one cannot deny the handiwork of  our creator. As I watch these amazing creatures I am in awe of everything about them.

Tiny creatures

Flitting from flower to flower

Seemingly oblivious

To the world around

Carried about

On tissue thin wings

Masterpieces of design

Painted in vivid colors

Beyond art

Migrating on the wind

Programmed GPS

Chrysalises bursting open

Reincarnated

Ephemeral beauty

For us to enjoy
