Butterfly of Blue ~ Leaves of Green

Expectant of greater things,
We try climbing -
Higher
And Higher;
An effort that costs us much,
Leaving us short of breath
To find only
The ground below is much prettier.

Lovely, it's like a ballgown.
And the quote is very apt.

I think we call it short-tailed blue, but I'm not sure that is the one... This is a beautiful shot Kerri!

I'm pretty sure you got the ID right. I saw my first on last Sunday. It wouldn't sit still. But then, the weather was so nice, I couldn't sit still either.
