Butterfly Frustrations, A Flitting Poem

Butterfly so filled with hunger,

Flits from bloom to bloom…

Wary of each move I make,

My camera needs more zoom…

I try to capture better poses,

Yet my fortunes fade…

With wistful glances I give in,

And instead write this tirade.

I tried to capture several photographs of butterflies the other day with nothing more than the camera on my phone so it isn’t surprising I couldn’t get a better photo. Get too close and they simply flitted away to another flower patch 😦

Maybe I will have better luck next time!

Have a great Sunday! Rest up and prepare to tackle the week!
