Mellow Yellow Monday _Butterfly-so high!

( Go here to find other MYM posts! )
Today I saw this butterfly but it was very high up in this Bottle Brush tree... still... I was able to zoom in and get a pretty good look!
For some reason, there hasn't been as many butterflies around our place this summer as usual. I was thrilled to see this one and it just hung there for several moments as I got my pictures! :)
I venture out for photo shots
of butterflies ~ sometimes, for hours.
They so enchant, with their gossamer wings~
flitting there, among the flowers.
The colors range from soft to bold.
Some showy as a fine spring day!
Other’s beauty ~ understated ~
still, frilly as a fine crochet.
Some are swift, not pausing long,
to sample blooms along the way.
Others linger, just hanging there ~
as if their beauty’s on display.
I stand poised in wonderment,
and reach to touch that softness there
~the contact's slight, but oh, so real ~
and know the feel of angel hair!
