Time flies like an arrow, butterflies like a flower

I made this doodle several days ago but find the center makes me think of a butterfly.

 

I was checking out some of the likes other bloggers have left me and I consequently came across¬†Tom Peace’s nature photography blog¬†which provided some inspiration for this next scene.

[Begin scene]

Deep pink petals surround a soft orange center which tops a slender green stem…

Perched on this beautiful flower rests an even more beautiful creature…

Thin velvety wings like stained glass windows shine bright in yellows and golds…

Its body a match in brightness, host to six tiny legs that cling to the flower against a slight breeze…

The butterfly sips from the delicate flower, its wings alight in the daytime sun…

Majestic!

Morning Dew

 

[Begin scene]

Droplets of water cling to blades of grass, daring to let go…

The yard shimmers like a thousand sunrises as the droplets pick up the early morning rays…

The cool damp ground muffles the sounds as a squirrel scurries through the grass, searching for yet another acorn to set away for the coming barren season…

The rising sun seals the fate of the scattered droplets as its warmth drives them back to the air from whence they came…

Tomorrow they will return, peaceful and beautiful as ever.

Mountain Trout

[Begin scene]

Silky white clouds pass between a pair of mountain peaks…

Green shrubbery covers the landscape softened by the blue of the sky…

A nearby stream flows swiftly by, cool water tumbling over an assortment of rocks, gurgling on its way…

Just under the surface there swims a handful of trout, keeping place despite the current rushing by…

In a word, serene.
