Lessons from a Dragonfly
A dragonfly accepts it’s brevity of life
With its gossamer wings feeling the breeze
Full of freedom it watches our joy and our strife
Its wisdom learned flitting from water to air to trees
With wings that shimmer showing purpose and duty
Obedient to all of life’s changes in flight
Modestly it shows us its outer beauty…
"The little caterpillar creeps
Awhile before in silk it sleeps.
It sleeps awhile before it flies,
And flies awhile before it dies,
And that's the end of three good tries."
"The Gulf Fritillary is named after the colorful, orange-red fritillary flower."
"The reference to the Gulf is due to the fact that this species is common in the states around the Gulf of Mexico."
I hope you enjoy these pictures. This was a very challenging butterfly to capture. They flutter their wings so fast it can be difficult to capture. Thanks so much for stopping by!
The Land of Liberty
~ Author Unknown
I love my country's pine-clad hills,
Her thousand bright and gushing rills,
Her sunshine and her storms;
Her rough and rugged rocks, that rear
Their hoary heads high in the air
In wild, fantastic forms.
I love her rivers, deep and wide,
Those mighty streams that seaward glide
To seek the ocean's breast;
