Mysteries in plain sight September 28, 2021 / phyllishelland Take the Black Swallowtail butterfly, or any butterfly for that matter; take any flower, leaf, bit of moss; any eye, nostril or ear; but in this case it’s a Black Swallowtail butterfly that snagged me. I managed to get a photo of it, then enlarged it so I could look way into the exquisite world of its wings: black with accents of blue, yellow, white. And that singing jot of orange! Who designed that? And why?Any given ordinary day offers mysteries in plain sight if we can but look between blinks. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

Wow, Phyllis. This is a stunning painting.
And you paint with words, too. “That singing dot of orange”! Who designed it indeed!?
Thanks, Becky. The longer I live, the more I notice and the more mysterious it all is.
