Happy Earth Day!! Red Admiral Butterfly! His Mission...Inspire!
Happy Earth Day my Flickr Friends! This beautiful "Vanessa atalanta" was in the garden center on Sunday. I had seen one on Flickr recently and thought, oh wow I would love to capture one of those. God was listening, as usual. I think it may have been the most beautiful and interesting butterfly I had ever seen in real life, much less photographed.
I hope today on Earth Day, and every day, you will think about our impact on this precious planet and all of its inhabitants. Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, of course, but even more important, PLEASE don't litter! It's job one my dear friends! It seems as though many have forgotten this fundamental respect for this planet and each other. I am out there in nature, and there are signs of man in the ponds and along the roads, in the form of trash. It makes me sad and angry. We are better than this!!
