Artist's Description

I did something totally foolish & ridiculous during my recent dramatic reduction of my visible and hidden galleries.
“Blue Blue Boy” a male Common Blue Butterfly, was one of my most popular postings with about 800 views over the almost 2 years I have been on RB.
I can only blame exhaustion and stupidity for this incredibly daft act of vandalism in accidentally removing this gorgeous insect!
My grovelling apologies to his handsomeness…I hope he will recover his popularity soon.
The female Common Blue is shown below.

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.

“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)
