Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

We have learned on Friday (and many times before that) and reminded very often that life is delicate and fragile.  We must take measures to take care of those around us.  We strive to conserve the flora and fauna around us by setting reserves, national parks and conservatories.

In 2011, I went to Niagara Falls with my boyfriend and there you can find the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory (I attached the link, just click on it and it’ll bring you to the website for those interested).  It was the most beautiful experience.  You have 2000+ butterflies fluttering all around you.  It is their man-made habitat to conserve them from the dangers that exist outside.  They are in all sorts of colours. You can spend hours standing and watching and taking pictures of them feeding, taking off, landing, etc.  However, even in a conservatory, we had to be careful to not move too quick and hurt them.  Even with all these measures, there were some that still had little injuries on their wings…So prove that, life is definitely delicate, especially with these little beautiful butterflies…

This butterfly did land on me.  I had the opportunity of having 3 land on me during my entire stay and I was so nervous to hurt them. So I stood around until they fluttered off or when I moved, I did it even more slowly.

Life is delicate, isn’t it?

  2. I love butterflies! I’ve had a few randomly land on me. They are so light and fragile, it takes your breath away. There is a butterfly museum here in Philly that i’ve gone to and having them fly around and watching them is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing such a sweet and wonderful blog!
