Buckeye Butterfly ~ Critter Saturday

As the summer starts to end, some of the plants and butterflies are leaving. I captured this Buckeye butterfly on the butterfly bush bloom earlier. 

I know they will return in the spring. First as a caterpillar then a butterfly will emerge. Still hard to see them go. I know it will be the end of their very short lives. 

I have a plaque my sister gave me that says… If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies.

Such a true statement and reminder that there are changes in life we all must endure.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Metamorphosis is such a deep powerful phenomenon. 🙂
    Changes can make us beautiful. 😁
    Hopefully a few days aren’t perceived as short by butterflies, but then comes the saying “it is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep”.

  2. I always love seeing the butterflies of the season and it feels sad when they drift away. I don’t know how the butterflies behave in this Florida climate but I know I do not see many and I am sure they have a different cycle here.
