A tiny (12-18mm) male Common Blue butterfly on Walmgate Stray, York.
I saw only one in 2009, hopefully there will be more this summer.
I spent several happy minutes watching, waiting, creeping closer, only for him to fly away…
Eventually I was close enough for this image. Now I’ve found him, he’ll probably stay there for a few days arguing with male Small Coppers! More opportunity for me to photograph him…

Mann macht und Gott lacht.
(man makes plans and God laughs – Yiddish saying)
This above all – to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
Hamlet (William Shakespeare)
“The best and most beautiful things in the world, cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart” Helen Keller
I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us. There is one God looking down on us all. We are all the children of one God. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.
George Moore 1852-1933 “Man travels the world in search of what he needs, returns home and finds it.”
Nostradamus 1503-1566 “Time is nothing, the desire to love is everything.”
One with the earth…
“This is the path I have chosen, no matter what circumstances may come, no matter how hard it is, no matter what I feel inside, I must stay on the path.” Unknown
This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.
“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
