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.

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.

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!
