It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Dark Form Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and a Silver Spot Skipper this morning. While beautiful the dark form just doesn't quite have the wow factor that the normal form has.
