"She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky." -Monique Duval Bhutan Grey Peacock Pheasant(Polyplectron bicalcaratum) #birdlife#beautiful

It is amazing what a lot of insect life goes on under your nose when you have got it an inch from the earth. I suppose it goes on in any case, but if you are proceeding on your stomach, dragging your body along by your fingernails, entomology presents itself very forcibly as a thoroughly justified science. -Beryl Markham, West with the Night #insectphotography#insect_addict

He was only a butterfly.Suddenly, he awoke and found himself laying there, a person once again. But then he thought to himself, ‘Was I before a man who dreamt about being a butterfly, or am I now a butterfly who dreams about being a man?’ #butterfly#green ...
