No D Day 2011: Painted Lady Prose

Thanks to the amazing Ninjabetic, No D Day is once again in full force. Today many of the Diabetes bloggers are writing about anything but diabetes!
As for yours truly, I'm writing about Painted Ladies - The fantastical butterflies fly to a warmer climate each and every fall and are literally everywhere I look come late September and early October.
These beautiful Painted Ladies make me smile and they make me happy and I LOVE THEM.
I started taking pictures of them last year and I like what I captured in my lens.
And then the butterflies inspired some prose and I decided to share both with you!

Painted Ladies sitting pretty on daisies

Painted Lady Butterflies sitting on daisies,
Painted Lady Butterflies behaving like.... Well, ladies.

They Flitter around and make me smile,
Flittering by my garden - stopping if only for a while.

It's amazing what these Painted Ladies will let you see...If you sit completely stil and let them be.
I snap their picutes, then sigh and say goodbye.
Knowing it will be anther year before I get another chance to say "Hi."
Travel well my lovely ladies - I'll see you next fall.
Goodbye my painted Ladies & love & kisses too you all!

A single Painted Lady

We raise Painted Ladies each year at school! It's so fun to watch them emerge from the chrysalis! Love it!!
