Eye Of The Papillon ...



"Life is like a butterfly, you can chase it,
or you can let it come to you."
                                       ~ Ruth Brown 
 Though he has an intent gaze and orange and black coloring,
this is not a tiger, but an Eastern Comma Butterfly.
This beautiful papillon pauses at Trexler Nature Preserve,
Schnecksville, Pennsylvania on a summer evening
before once again taking flight.

They Call Me Tangerine ...





"Yes, she has them all on the run,
but her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine ..."
                        ~ "Tangerine"
                                     ~ Victor Schertzinger & Johnny Mercer
                                                                          1941 

With beautiful tangerine colored wings, an Eastern Comma Butterfly
rests on a summer day on a bench in Garett D. Wall Park, 
Belvidere, New Jersey, a charming and historic town on the
banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.
