Our prompt this week is shapes and designs. Shapes and designs are all around us although we usually don’t slow down long enough to see them. When was the last time you stopped to watch a butterfly?
I absolutely love photos of butterflies (and bees). If I get photos of them, I’ve had an excellent day. Nothing tops butterflies and bees except sunrises and sunsets, pictures of family – well, maybe butterflies and bees are in the top 5.
For me, butterflies are more difficult to catch than bees. Bees are heavy workers and will stay burrowed into a flower long enough to take a picture. Butterflies are more elegant. They skip from plant to plant just long enough to take a few sips and then move on. It requires some stalking to get a good butterfly shot.
Butterflies are so beautiful. Their colors are so bold and the designs they present are so clear, so symmetrical (I’m very OCD about symmetry) that I could follow them all day. All the designers at Fashion Week, etc can’t hold a candle to what Mother Nature can do.
