Butterflies captured in a butterfly house, Palos Verdes, California

A butterfly is a symbol of happiness and good luck to follow you in the future


I recently went to the Butterfly House in Palos Verdes , California

This is the chrysalis , before it hatches to a butterfly
The food station of grapefruits

The blue morphus before opening it’s wings
Here it is in all its beauty unfolded. They are really hard to captured since they move so quickly

The most common is the Monarch butterfly

Butterflies also symbolize spiritual growth and wisdom .
They landed on my hat, arms and even on my camera, so I guess I got lots of wisdom from this mesmerizing visit. Enjoy what you see

” Nature is not a place to visit. It is home”– by Gary Snyder

The earth is our home where we live in , and we need to protect our precious earth like we do ourselves. We go to doctors when we feel ill to get being healed, so why don’t we heal our earth from all the poisons we spread out in the universe.

The delicacy of “gentle feelings”….

The Alstroemeria commonly called the Peruvian Lily symbolizes wealth, prosperity and fortune, as it comes in all different colors, this pink one presents the symbol of gentle feelings.

The long main stem branches into four or six short pedicals, each holding two to four flower buds.

It is said , that typically a cut flower lasts for a week or two, but mine magically lasted over four weeks in my vase.

THE PARADISE OF BOOKS …..

I have always imagined that Paradise will be kind of a library” – by Jorge Luis Borges

Indeed that is my imagination as well.
Before my passion as a professional photographer I used to be a professional and passionate bookseller, back than in Germany.

Reading books open a different world to you and your imagination.

Enjoy the paradise of your own library with joy of reading
