Lovely pictures. Many thanks for sharing

I just love the colors of this Red Admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta) that I photographed on Monday at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. I mean, really, how can you not like an insect that sports the red, white, and blue?

You don’t have to be American to like those three colors—it seems like there are an awful lot of countries that use them in various shades and patterns in their national flags.

That one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backwards, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it….but love it.”

Amor Fati translates to “a love of fate.” Instead of wishing for things to be different, to be better, you wish them to be as they are, embrace them and make everything you can out of them. A weaker person needs things to be a certain way. The truly unstoppable person loves it all because it’s fuel for them…
