Steady As She Blows by Lisa G. Putman



This Pearl Cresent butterfly seemed to defy all the winds forces as all the flowers around it were blowing in the breeze. This was a difficult day for shooting butterflies with the wind gusting all about. The Pearl Cresent is an elusive one for me, I’ve been working on a good shot of one for a while now. I was very happy to capture this one, although it could have been much sharper on a calm day.

Butterfly, Butterfly never fear
Keep on working flower to flower,
here, there and everywhere,

Fulfill your destiny hour by hour.
Your delicate wings bravely endure
non-relenting winds and steady showers.

Stay the course, go with the flow
do everything you were created for.
No regrets, of long ago.

He will show you where to go,
He will provide, you will need nothing more
Your work all done before you go..

No need to worry, to and fro,
You’ve finished it all, there is nothing more.
The Creator is filled with joy that overflows.

    The tiny Pearl Crescent is difficult to capture, but you did a fine job here, Lisa. The background provides a lovely canvas for your star which is center stage. Very artistically done!
