As we were clearing up debris after the cyclone, my hubby called me over to see a Ulysses butterfly. Now as you know they normally flutter about so quickly that it is very hard to capture good photos of them. This one was showing some distress, flopping about, and other butterflies would flutter down to check on it. I took the rare opportunity to capture some awesome photos.
I am so blessed to live here where these colorful butterflies flit around my garden regularly.
Recently my dear Mom passed away and I have noticed little things that give me comfort. Butterflies live short lives and it is sad to see one die, but that is the nature of the world. I don't know if the cyclone cut its life short, or if it had just reached its allotted time.
We need to catch our beauty where we can, and stop and live in the moment, and tell our loved ones we love them.
This quote from Ecclesiastes 3:1 sums it up for me.To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven
