Ragtag Daily Prompts: Jumble

Butterfly MatingThis is my contribution to today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt: Jumble. If you look closely, then you will see that this is a photograph of two butterflies, doing what comes natural. When I first saw them, they were in flight and I asked myself, “What kind of butterfly is that?” As if in reply, they landed on a piece of grass. This was taken yesterday. It was an amazingly beautiful day without a cloud in the sky. Unfortunately, the glare made it difficult to see the viewer on my camera. Also, there was a strong but subtle breeze that made all the vegetation sway, making it difficult to get a good bead on the flowers and the insects that live on them. Out of about ten shots, this is the only one that came out. Thank God for persistence and that last shot!

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.
