Feeling fresh

As kids, we caught butterflies and put them in a bottle. When it dies, the ‘corpse’ went within the pages of a very heavy book and ‘pressed’, only to end up a few days later on a chart paper – a part of the school project!
I cannot, for the world of me, imagine, how heartless we were when I now see butterflies – and bees – in the garden, hovering over fresh flowers looking for nectar.
I now look at these stunning creatures with a different eye – the photographer’s eye – and it’s a whole new world that I see. Not bothering with the camera, I step out each morning with the phone to see what I can capture.
And this is today’s ‘catch’ – a butterfly so engrossed in its daily chore that it never even attempted to fly off even when I was just an inch or so away.
No wonder, then, we were able to take them ‘prisoner’ and serve them the capital punishment.
Every day – every morning – is a revelation. The very heavy rain last night has made everything even prettier – and more photogenic than ever.
For sure, there’s more to come!

  3. It’s what kids do. I used to cheer when my father drove over a toad on our driveway, not that I admire toads today.
