…as if I had wings… © Sharon Boswall
“I want to be improbable beautiful and afraid of nothing,
as though I had wings.” (Mary Oliver ~ Owls and Other Fantasies).
This weekend is the last for the annual Papillons en Liberté exhibit at our Botanical Gardens and I hope to get a chance to visit. I usually get there much earlier than this (I had a hard time finding a charger for my camera’s battery) so I am afraid there will not be too many different species of butterflies and the greater number of them will be Paper Kites (a.k.a. Rice Paper) like the one in the last photo in this trio. I don’t really mind… it’s not just about the photos but also very much about the experience and being that close to such beautiful and fragile little creatures. Cannot help but wonder what they think of us - probably not as excited to see us as we are them!
