It never ceases to amaze me, the vast diversity of seashell species, the ocean delivers in any given day.
A blanket of Conchs one day, millions of Jingles the next; Olives? Shark Eyes? Jewel Boxes...oooh, each day is Christmas morning...can hardly contain the excitement to discover the daily bounty of the sea!
Today's special, if you will, is all about the "Butterflies". A plethora of Coquinas, to be scientifically correct. The summer sun catches their vibrant colors like gemstones displayed in a brightly lit jeweler's case.
This is a "Tiny Treasures" or "Baby Blessings" excursion kind of day. Over looked by the casual collector in search of the biggest and boldest; their loss is my gain. I can hardly wait to find the perfect perch to spread their wings.
I returned home to notice an extraordinary, vibrantly striped yellow & purple butterfly of the insect variety, skipping along the Hibiscus; another high atop the blooming Madagascar Palm.
You do not have to live in paradise for a daily dose of "Baby Blessings". Regardless of what life delivers, don't overlook the "Tiny Treasures" each day has to offer. After all, butterflies are free.
