The male Cruiser Butterfly is native to Cape York, Australia.
Dazzling and beautiful,
Fluttering by in a hurry,
Darting this way and that,
In a silent flurry.
With a fleeting glimpse,
It captures your gaze,
A soft whisper of air,
Leaving you peaceful but dazed!
Butterfly encounters always occur in a beautiful and tranquil setting. They are spontaneous, almost always catching you completely off guard. For me, there is something magical and peaceful about these moments in time. Although a butterfly only lives for a short while, it leaves a lasting memory!
