[PHOTO] Butterflies

Early this morning at something like 2:30, I was walking north up Spadina towards that street's intersection with Bloor Street West when he heard a young woman saying earnestly to her friend, "Some people don't see the sunrise and the sunset. They don't realize how gorgeous things are." True, that; beauty can be found if you look, regardless of the scale.

Beauty can be small-scale indeed. While Andrew and I were walking east along Gerrard Street a couple of months ago, I saw some scraps of odd colour in a front-yard garden that turned out to be some butterflies perched on a cluster of what my mom, the garden, told me was a cluster of coneflowers. He took pictures, I took pictures, I've three below.
