Wordless Wednesday...Making the Most of the Time You Have

 

For weeks now I’ve been trying to snap a video or photo of one of the butterflies we see on our morning walks.

Seeing butterflies always fills me with mixed emotions… joy just seeing one, and sadness for their very short lives. 

And even though their lives are short, look at how much joy they bring to our world. 

 

The butterfly counts not months but moments and has time enough.

Really enjoy your post today, they are hard to photograph always flitting away as you get closer. Especially like the quote, reminds us all to be present and not to rush through life, enjoy where we are right now.

My Mom loves butterflies as well.  One year we took her to Butterfly Wonderland for her birthday, she loved it.

I had no idea butterflies lived such a short time - there are a ton of them out at the moment. I should try to photograph one.

Thank you for sharing your photos!

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for letting us know that the beauty of butterflies is short lived.  Most of them are wonderful to look at and I remember my kids chasing them when they were little.

Kathy,

Like you I love butterflies.  Our area has a Monarch reserve, so we see them quite often, and lately we have been seeing swallowtails in the garden.  That quote by Tagore is one of my favorites. A

I love butterflies and had them in my garden but really loved visiting a butterfly house. That was cool.

Kathy the butterfly is a great reminder how short time can be, so we need to cherish every second and use our time wisely.

Hi Kathy Streib - I didn't know about the butterfly life span so I followed the link.  Great analogy.

Wayne Martin and that's a good thing!!

Donald Urschalitz that is so true. Sometimes we don't learn that until later in life. 

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 Thank you very much!!!!  And that is a favorite quote of mine.

Brian England I love those places. We went to one down in Miami a few years ago and had so much fun. 

Sharon Tara I think everyone stops what they're doing when they see a butterfly!

Kat Palmiotti I've noticed more butterflies lately too. I should read more about them.

Jeffrey Richman Some of the butterflies I saw the other day were too far off the footpath for me to go. Tall grass...snakes...you know how it is!

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel you are so lucky to have swallowtails in your garden!!!!!

Myrl Jeffcoat for me they seem like gifts from heaven. 

Sharon Lee I keep putting off planting some shrubs that would attract butterflies but for now it's too hot.
