Monarch butterfly on a tasselflower

Monarch butterfly on tasselflower

I like getting out and about and, when I do, I’m constantly on the lookout for everything from insects to whales. When I go for a walk, I usually say something along the lines of, ‘I’ll be back in an hour, unless I see a bug or a butterfly.’

This was one of those days. Turtles in the bay, a giant African land snail oozing across a dirt road, and this monarch butterfly doing the rounds of the tasselflowers. A good walk indeed.

    A beautiful photo illustrating the ultimate transformation expressed in the Chinese proverb: “What is death to the caterpillar we call the butterfly”, also alluded to in the post A Place in the World, so beautifully expressed.

    Thanks for the like posted on my blog.
