Artist's Description

Why is it, that when you witness something you have never seen before, with the opportunity to take hundreds of images, the light is **********? 11 baby Swallows were sitting in a dead tree, well within GH2/lens range and all the photos are JUNK! This is the best, a Meadow Brown butterfly being fed to a hungry youngster, cropped & edited in Photoscape. It’s not brilliant, the light improved 3 hours later, but I couldn’t go back.

“Butterflies adorn the world and delight the eye”
John Ray (17th century naturalist)

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Aristotle

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”
Helen Keller

“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

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 sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

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.
Saadi

“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 ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)
