January Squares: Butterfly Alights

Butterfly on a hydrangea

A gently fading hydrangea provides food and temporary cover for a butterfly which is camouflaged against it. Butterflies give themselves away by fluttering, which is no doubt what drew me to this one.

I’m sharing this for Becky’s January Squares – my word is alight. Her submission today is a wonderful twilight – don’t miss it!

    My comment wouldn’t go through a couple hours ago. I harrumphed but am back to try again. I think what I was trying to say was that it was hard to tell if the flower was wearing the butterfly or the butterfly wearing the flower. Even the veins in the older petals seem to mimic the veins in the wings. Who knew that “alight” had so many dimensions? Brilliant!
