butterfly blues

seeking food

fooled by a runner

lifes not fair

There is a lot to read into the imagination of this butterfly. Was it attracted by the colour of Jill’s runner? Was it fooled by the pattern that looked like plant structure? Was there some spilt honey on the shoe? Whatever the reason this persistent little insect would not depart. Jill took her shoe off and held it up for me to get a close up shot and still it stayed. Eventually it walked onto her hand and stayed there for a while before finally flying away hopefully discovering real food somewhere.

  1. This is a wonderful haiku observation! Let’s hope there was some sweet on the shoe or maybe it was simply dazzled by false hope as you suggest 🙂

      1. Perhaps … we over estimate our capacity, why not a bee or butterfly? But whatever the reason it feels special when a butterfly stays on us ( I don’t know if I’d want a bee to rest on me 😉
