Artist's Description

A gorgeous tiny (28mm) Green Hairstreak Butterfly, the first I have ever seen.
The upper wings are brown but this wonderful green underwing is unique in British butterflies. He was one of several on Bilberry bushes in the most inaccessible place imaginable. Well worth the fall in the bog, respiratory distress and sore leg muscles! The site is inland near Whitby, up a hill, down a hill, through a bog, past a pond, through gorse and bramble….
The butterfly lands on the leaf and promptly falls over, making it even more difficult to see him unless you follow his descent very carefully.

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.
