Butterfly (245/365)

When a small child, I thought that success spelled happiness. I was wrong, happiness is like a butterfly which appears and delights us for one brief moment, but soon flits away.

Anna Pavlova (Russian ballerina, the most celebrated Dancer of her time. 1882-1931)

TIME:  5:46 PM
PLACE:  Backyard
SUBJECT:  Monarch butterfly

We’ve had many monarch butterflies around our back yard these days.  It must be mating season.  They are chasing each other and fly-dancing all around the yard.  I never knew butterflies could be so fast.
