Where do butterflies go to die?

Dead ButterfliesYou know winter has arrived when you find the delicate, desiccated corpses of summers butterflies lying scattered, like confetti, on the beach…  the stencils on their tissue-wings drained of vibrant colour, stark and tragically beautiful in their uncommon stillness.

  1. A beautiful insight into an exquisite image. Love it!

  2. Liked your descriptive word “confetti” here. Great visual word to see the “bigger” picture.

  3. How beautifully described. Here in Amsterdam, I’ve been finding the corpses of bees, with our barmy warm weather here this year, they have definately been outliving their time…
