Butterfly And Company ...


"Butterflies are self-propelled flowers."
                                            ~ Robert Heinlein
                                                                        ~ 1907-1988

Beautiful Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly alights on the thistle 
as a bee is already enjoying the nectar on a sweet summer day
at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Butterflies Are Free ...

"I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free."
                                                    ~ Charles Dickens
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly and the Red Admiral Butterfly behind it almost seem as if their wings
are touching as they sip the nectar of buddleia flowers.

Papillon Dream

"Just like the butterfly, I too will awaken in my own time."
                                            ~ Deborah Chaskin

I wondered what a butterfly's dream would look like. This is the image I imagined  for this
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail ...

Oh Papillon!

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly. "One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
                                                              ~ Hans Christian Andersen
This Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly had all of this yesterday!
