Much to my delight, a number of these beautiful butterflies are surviving the gales and I have also spotted the odd painted lady with the coppers in the meadow.

How on earth do such delicate things survive such powerful weather? Lovely shots as usual Carol.

Apparition of a Butterfly

Upon a fuzzy vista – vision blurred –
I tried to focus; nothing ever solid
Came to view, but undeterred, I blinked
An eye to try again. Through the mist
A coloured hue; polychromatic flames
Had flickered at a whim; a rhythm bore
A thrumming too: a naturalistic hymn.
Behold! Were I to find a synonym to
Reproduce or recreate
The apparition of a Copper Butterfly,
Evolving through the waning vapour,
Drawing on a sigh from this romantic.
Glory be! The raging sun above
Had fired his furnace, flaming off
The hangers on. Now I saw the flare:
His time has come. He spread a Copper Coat –
A scene of Mother Nature at her best.
I lay in peace in knowing I was blessed.

Regards Nathan
