Broken Wings

Butterflies are such beautiful creatures... fragile and delicate, so colorful, with such pretty patterns.  It's a bit of a challenge trying to capture them on camera when they're flying about.

I'd almost stepped on this one here.  It was on the yellow strip of a stair, almost camouflaged.  Poor thing, upon closer look, it seems that it couldn't fly, because its wings were broken.  It landed on a busy part of the trail; I hope someone was able to somehow move it to a safer spot.

They are such a beautiful thing to see. This is sad to see it's pretty wings broken. I had one in my driveway not long ago that either someone ran over it, but it didn't look smashed. Felt so bad. Agree, they are hard to capture on camera, but I did this late Fall. It was so busy on some of my late flowers that it stayed and stayed so I got some nice ones of it. We haven't had so many in the past few years so I was pleased to see this one visiting my late blooming Fall flowers.
Thanks for visiting me and linking up. :)

I have been surprised by how they can fly despite their injuries. I hope s/he is ok.
