This is another photo that I took last night on my walk. She sat still for me just long enough to capture her beauty.
Resting gently on this tiny leaf
This beautiful butterfly caught my eye
Sun bouncing from its wings
I caught this shot, before she began to fly.
I walked up slowly
Not wanting to scare her away
I had my camera ready and aimed
Please praying for her to stay.
She seemed to know what I was doing
As she made no attempt to leave
She spread her wings so wide for me
As if caught in a spider’s weave.
I got up even closer still
And could see all her splendor
I snapped this photo for you to see
How beautiful, delicate and tender.
