Photo Friday: To a Butterfly

I've watched you now a full half-hour; 
Self-poised upon that yellow flower 
And, little Butterfly! indeed 
I know not if you sleep or feed. 
How motionless!--not frozen seas 
More motionless! and then 
What joy awaits you, when the breeze 
Hath found you out among the trees, 
And calls you forth again! 

- William Wordsworth "To a Butterfly"

Beautiful poetry and photography make a sweet marriage. I had to take a closer look because I thought it was a piece of paper.

This was certainly was self-poised, wasn't he?!

I love this poem! I don't remember reading it before, but it is perfect for this photograph.
