Dark Butterfly

“Light always trumps darkness. It always has, and it always will.

Therefore… if you believe that your world is darkening…

if you believe that the culture of your nation

is growing dimmer by the year…

don’t blame it on the dark!

Darkness is only doing what darkness does.

“If darkness is winning the battles, my friend,

it is because light is not doing it’s job.

You are light.

So wake up. Wake up.”

  1. what a beauty !!!! ours are not so big and colourfull !

    • This is an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail female. We have a large family of these Swallowtails in our garden this month, and all are big and healthy looking. Is there a similiar butterfly in Belgium, Gwennie? We’re still waiting for the Monarchs here…. Thank you for visiting today 😉

  2. Darkness and light, in perfect balance…just as they should be.
