    This caterpillar jas found an ideal place to form its cocoon right on this wall, and after maybe one week the "Royal Butterfly" will emerge there. In the meantime I have added the pacman to create some drama... for fun.

    Seeing many of those butterflies tottering on the ground we realized we were witnessing the Ending Of Life - and in large numbers. As if all of these beauties have appeared on the same day, they were now all dying in the same span of maybe two days. Nature is uncanny. * Nymphalis antiopa, known as the Mourning Cloak in North America and the Camberwell Beauty in Britain, is a large butterfly native to Eurasia and North America. (Wikipedia)

    Strictly for the people which do not know much about cameras but still wish to belong among photographers, heres the simplest explanation. It is also known as "look here, press here" theory. Other photographers have long since realized it does take a tad of learning. Every day. Of your natural life. And maybe even later...

    A caterpillar needs to eat lots of leaves so as to grow up and metamorph into a beautiful butterfly. What if beefeaters (er, beef eaters?) had to develop in the same fashion?! ;)

    I thought this butterfly was dead, and then I noticed it was moving. I tried to save him out of the water, just to realise it wanted to go right back. Actually, I was witnessing the laying of eggs on underwater plants, as this insect was creating a future generation. We live to learn...

    We share this planet with large variety of beings, which makes us all Earthlings - even when many look way different from us! And we havent yet seen all lifeforms in our World - not by a long shot! It got me thinking: how are we ever hoping to find life in the Universe if were not able to recognize it, and if we are not ready to admit that everything around us, including that Universe, actually teems with life!? Only local circumstances determine the shape and functions of all life forms on Earth, so why shouldnt it be the same everywhere? Beings on land and in the waters differ immensely for that very same, logical and basic reason. Why would it be otherwise for other places? There are many places Out There. We just do not really know what to look for. Our most ancient literature still holds some bewildering statements, like "all heavenly bodies; stars and planets, are inhabited", or " the material Universe is just 1/4th of the whole Creation". Where did this knowledge come from? Why isnt it at the fulcrum of all sciences of Man? Themes worthy of pondering upon when you see a butterfly... a fish... a bacteria... ;)

    Its a privilege to share some minutes with other living beings, especially those that have not much long left to live. Daily temperatures are still nice, but nights are getting cold and beauties like this one will not survive it.

    Just compare human product and natural design in their basics, and youll see how crudely we try to imitate Nature. Still, we can enjoy what we do... and we dont know the Natures feelings.

    "The Old World swallowtail (Papilio machaon) is a butterfly of the family Papilionidae. The butterfly is also known as the common yellow swallowtail or simply the swallowtail (a common name applied to all members of the family, but this species is the original, first to go by the name). It is the type species of the genus Papilio and occurs throughout the Palearctic region in Europe and Asia; it also occurs across North America, and thus, is not restricted to the Old World, despite the common name."

    Maybe those beautiful being should better be named Flutterby instead of Butterfly, since he appears to wander through the air rather aimlessly. Sat down on the terrace table exactly for how long it took to snap off this one shot... and off he went again!
  • Country: Macedonia
    The butterfly flitter-fluttered around for a while, and then settled down on Emmas camera. Maybe blue is the color he likes the most?

    It was a summer afternoon,when I take this photo near my house. Actually it was fun cause the butterfly fly around when I move a little bit of muscle and I glad that I took the shot.

    The insect with probably the most erratic flight of all! Perhaps it is to avoid getting caught... or simply the joy of living... Then again, I know some people which drive their cars in the same way... :)

    The spider has made his net at my cars front grille, and the butterfly was unlucky enough to fly, or be blown, in it... Sad but natural. What is fascinating to me is how gossamer silk can survive in the strong airflow of the speeding car! Another one of Natures wonders.

    Literally out of the blue, the butterfly landed on my wifes camera, and a moment later flitterred over to her hand. She walked around taking photos of the beautiful insect, and the impromptu session continued for almost ten minutes! Then the little brave flew away, and we were, and still are, thankful for this experience...
