Be you a great painter, but rare is he who can create the beauty that nature does….

“….beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.”

Khalil Gibran – The Prophet

Life Imitates Art

It was a beautiful March morning and a few friends and me set out to visit the Butterfly Park at Bannerghatta, in the outskirts of Bangalore.

Being rather early, we were able to get the butterflies before they become too active. We saw lots of Lime Butterflies (Papilio demoleus) They were busy feeding on Ixora coccinea flowers (also known as jungle geranium, flame of the woods or jungle flame).

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Came across this beautiful quote and had to share it with last nights moon capture…
