While walking down a country road yesterday I stumbled upon something that really chocked me up, two dead butterflies and a third which appeared to be in a state of shock. I immediately thought OMG...how tragic! The butterflies were obviously friends, maybe even lovers ...I don't know ? Did they travel from Mexico together to this place where they were born? You see Butterflies return to their birth places.
So....Oh me oh my... I took only one photograph and then decided to video tape this situation of grief for the Butterfly. In the video you can see what appears to a Butterfly in shock. In a few instances you can see it try to lift, raise or gets it's friend airborn again . It's quite moving so do have a hanky handy.
Choose carefully which video you watch first. The top one has a song from Julee Cruise called The World Spins and the second video has music from my favorite all time composer Guthrie Lowe from the documentary Mimetoliths.
