This is the infamous maple tree Clara fell out of. I can't blame Clara for wanting to be up close. This is what it looked like at the time. It is amazing to me that in one day it can have so many different kinds of beauty.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
