Beautifully put! Only we don’t turn to ‘soup’ as we grow and change. Thankfully. Do you know which species this is?
Hi Shannon, no I don’t know. Thanks for stopping by.
I agree – beautiful image too 🙂
Thanks so much, Indah, appreciate your visit. And have a lovely weekend —
Lovely colours! Have a great weekend!
Although all butterflies have beauty, it is fun to see the ones in South America because the color combinations are quite different than in North America. So glad you enjoyed it pc, I appreciate your visit. And you, too, have a great weekend!
So beautiful – its deep rich colors remind me of the rich colors of Peruvian woven fabrics.
I really like that thought, BJ — with their colorful birds and butterflies in Peru, there is definitely a connection. 😀
Thanks so much, Cindy — enjoy your weekend! 🙂
Beautiful words and image Jet. Happy weekend to you and Athena.
Thanks so much, Sue — I’m looking forward to a lovely weekend — you have one too! 😀
Beautiful picture and quote! ❤
Very kind message, Lucy — thanks so much. 😀
Love this quote Jet! What a beautiful butterfly 🙂
I had never heard of LeeAnn Taylor before, but I liked the quote, and I’m glad you did too, Val. Thanks so much! 😀
Such an attractive butterfly, fitting quote! Thanks, Jet. 🙂
I really like that butterfly, so bright and elegant, striking. I’m glad you enjoyed the butterfly and quote, Iris, and I appreciate your visit today! 😀
beautiful and bright creature and lovely quote
The butterflies in So. America are so different, not only in color but in shape too. I’m glad you liked the post today Gill. 😀
Love this beautiful butterfly capture, it go with this inspiring quote perfectly! 🙂
I liked the quote not only for the earth aspect, but because butterflies symbolize transformation, and we humans are often, if not always, in a state of transformation. I’m really glad you enjoyed the post today, Amy. And, as always, I appreciate your frequent visits and comments. Have fun this weekend!
Thank your, Jet for taking time to sharing your passion for nature and knowledge with us. Enjoy the weekend!
I am enjoying the weekend, Amy — thanks so much for stopping by, and you enjoy your weekend too! 😀
Beautiful species! Great shot! Congrats to Athena!!!
Thanks so much, Kirt — very glad you enjoyed the butterfly! 😀
Splendid image to go with a lovely thought.
Your kind comments and frequent visits are so much appreciated, Gunta. I’m glad you liked the butterfly post. 😀
Love the contrast in the photo of the beautiful butterfly on the rocks and soil.
Thanks so much, Nan, and good eye! Pretty rocks, have blue in them. Always glad to hear from you. 🙂
Smartass that I am, I decided to try & find out the species. Ha! Then I read “Peru has over 3,700 butterfly species – more than any other country and equal to about 20% of the world total” and thought better of it! RH
You saw what Athena saw, in her original and then aborted attempt to identify the species. Lol. I appreciate your efforts and especially your honesty, RH. And now we can enjoy it for its beauty alone, dear friend. 😀
That is a beautiful Peruvian butterfly! Great shot too. I wonder if they ever come visit here 🙂
Those creatures of the Amazonian tropics like their daily rains and humid conditions. But we can digitally enjoy them, as you have done, Tiny. Wonderful to receive your kind words and visit. 🙂
That title caused a bell to go off in my head… fantastic reminder, thank you.
That is so rewarding for me to hear, K’lee, I am delighted to have given you a reminder about our earth. I appreciate your comment, and your many visits. 😀
Likewise, Jet! I also appreciate your visits and comments.
I love the photo and the quote! ♥
Thanks so very much misifusa! Appreciate your comment and visit…. 😀
I love butterflies apparently my great grandmother used to collect them in Malaysia. Very vibrant colours.
i think we know where you developed your love for butterflies, Marje. I’m sure there are some breathtaking beauties in Malaysia. Thanks so much for your visit! 😀
