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!

Butterfly 3This butterfly is dedicated to the memory of all of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and their families. A special prayer goes out for the souls of the first responders who gave their lives that others might live.

Butterfly 9

This may be my personal favorite. It’s like a stained glass window. Breathtaking. –Russell
