  2. Woah, I was actually thinking of posting photos of butterflies with broken wings myself for this week's Photo Hunt but didn't in the end. Re the butterflies: find it amazing that they can still fly even after having what looks like major injuries. A testament to their stamina and fortitude to my mind!

  3. It quite good to see how passionately you make these posts, most of which require a great deal of patience to capture in the first place.

  10. I wonder what happened to its wing Deepak? It's still a beautiful creature, I love the way your background is so softly blurred.

  11. In today's world,
    goondas prevail;

    a lady bus commuter
    has an
    imitation gold
    necklace snatched;
    the thief returns
    again
    to berate
    and
    attack her
    on her face:
    how dare she cheat a thief !

    So does a butterfly,
    with false eyes
    on dorsal wings,
    designed to divert
    the goonda insects
    attention
    from the main body,
    suffer a later
    retribution
    on the imitation eyes.

    A torn wing
    and a
    scratched neck and face.
    The butterfly and the lady
    learn to flutter,
    utter something,
    and get on
    with the business
    of flitting
    and living
    in a sometimes cruel world.
