I Heart Macro Sunday - Butterflies

Hello all, this is I Heart Macro Sunday and it is all about butterflies.  Mom was lucky enough to take pictures of a butterfly Wednesday night getting drunk on the pollen in the lilies.  I was so excited to share this pictures because you can see the pollen on the wings and you can see the butterfly dip its head into the flowers in a couple of the photos.  It was so exciting to see these the next day, mom done good and I guess I will keep her.

'Twould ease - a Butterfly - by Emily Dickinson

'Twold ease - a Butterfly
Elate - a Bee
Thou'rt neither
Neither - thy capacity

But, Blossom, were I
I would rather be
Thy moment
Than a Bee's Eternity

Content of fading
Is enough for me
Fade I unto Divinity

And Dying - Lifetime
Ample as the Eye
Her least attention raise on me

Join the fun at Waterstone Studio or go and see what everyone has taken a picture this week.
