She Runs With Net
It is always fun to 1.) see such beauty, and 2.) have it stay still long enough for you to get your camera and take a photo. This butterfly was in no hurry to fly away. It was as if it knew it was being photographed. It posed with a full wing span, a closed wing span, and many positions in between. I have a children’s picture book manuscript that I have been working on about a little girl learning to be a butterfly catcher – and so this haiga.
Hope there are many moments of rest for you today – and maybe even a moment to run with your net…what is the saying? – butterflies are free.
