summer meadow
a butterfly passing through
the viewfinder

what a fantastic observation, sometimes we are so very concentrated on catching an issue that we just leave the best things unnoticed

__There is another picture here; an instant's echo arose but, in reason, 'tis best just say... I like your haiku.

You see a meadow through a viewfinder? Or just the butterfly?

Hi, Nick. Two possibilities: I raise the camera to capture something I've noticed in the meadow, and at that moment the butterfly passes, or, I want to get a picture of the butterfly, but it passes too quickly. Anyway, something about the natural and the technological. Thanks for the visit.

Yes, indeed, Juliet.
