The flower a tethered butterfly.
Ponce Denis Ecouchard Lebrun
French poet, 1729-1807
I can't remember when I first heard the quote that begins this post, but it came echoing back to me as I sorted through the photos I took of butterflies in my back yard a week or so ago. Capturing in a photograph the beautiful butterflies as they flitted fleetingly among equally beautiful flowers was a challenge, and in many photos it was difficult to see what was flower and what was butterfly.
Just for fun, let's play a game! You've probably heard of Where's Waldo, where you look at a detailed drawing of a crowd or scene and try to locate the funny little guy named Waldo among all the stripes and circles and colours and the like. So..... let's play "Where's Waldo" Ponce Denis Ecouchard Lebrun's way - with flowers and butterflies!
Imagine each photo as a 3x3 grid, with the resulting blocks numbered like this:
|In this example, the butterfly is fairly easily seen in block number 5.|
For each of the five photos that follow, in what numbered block do you see the butterfly? When you've looked at all five, scroll down a little ways past the last photo to check your answers!
|Photo 4 - a bit more challenging!|
|Photo 5 - there's two in here!|
