Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) tired and worn but still beautiful

Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) tired and worn but still beautiful
This photo brought so many emotions out of the clear blue.

So many people and so many things past and gone... much Loss... much Gain.

One beautiful tired , weary butterfly encapsulated so much.

It may not make sense to you... I am not sure the reasoning does to me. I just know taking this photo took me through a whole world of emotion.

Oh Pam this is truly a lovely tribute to the efforts of the butterfly. Perhaps the beautiful faded background gave your memory a jolt. Our memories are really never far from thought and it doesn't take much to bring them rushing back and with them come a wide range of emotion. Your thoughts do make sense to me Pam! :)

Know what you mean, SAB ...
When I see the tattered, worn butterflies - I want to reach out and fix them, even though I know they are quite capable of surviving with less of those beautiful wings than they start with ...
Beauty - true beauty isn't visible ...
