MONDAY is MACRO DAY: Week 8: On Gossamer Wings

On Gossamer Wings.


There are many poems and songs featuring the phrase “on gossamer wings”. (I know this because I googled!  It wasn’t only Cole Porter who used it!).

But there is nothing like seeing the real thing close up. I spent a while one day last week watching this tiny, beautiful Common Blue butterfly. It was magical way to spend time.
