Home Sweet Home: A Visitor in the Garden



Yesterday, I had a grand time taking photos of a visitor in our garden. I was done hanging the laundry outside for drying when my attention got caught by this friendly winged creature.



I quickly grabbed my phone not minding whether my hands were wet and slowly approached the fellow wishing it won't be too shy and fly away....

..it teased me non-stop


...even admiring its own shadow...


until it finally rested on a flower bed....

and made me love gardening all the more...

and the family and friends who inspire me everyday..

to love every creature like there is no tomorrow...

  9. You did a great job of picturing the butterfly, you took great pictures indeed the position of its wings and you can actually see its design, it must think that it is a star that's why it teases you.

  12. Oh wow, she's gorgeous. I love the one where she catches a shadow. They say that butterflies are spirits of love ones who departed from life so whenever I see one, I always wonder who they are.
