'The Thistle and The Butterfly'

Dear Readers,

'The Thistle and The Butterfly' .....both are used as symbols....the thistle for 'nobility of character' and the butterfly for 'freedom'. Here we see them together.

Principles are timeless truths presented here for our ponderance. Timeless truths can give a bit of guidance, a standard when there is none.  

Synonyms for principles are maxims, axioms, proverbs, and precepts.

Thank you for visiting 'Principle of the Day'.

Kind Regards,


Please be so kind as to not leave photos, gifs, links, etc. below... so as not to distract from the post.

Thank you Steemit for opportunity to post at this fine site.

Hello Bleujay
Really like the drawing.... a lot actually. Your work ?
Thanks for the happy thoughts as well.

Greetings @chrominumone,

Lovely to hear from you.

Appreciate hearing your thoughts regarding the post's principle, photographs and drawing.

The 'drawing' is one of the photographs from the same photo shoot as the others....taken through a B&W filter...on top of which bleujay coloured by means of a sketch app.....make sense?

Happy to hear you enjoyed the drawing as it is too much fun. ^__^

All the best.


Nice photos, i liked :)

Thank you for your kind words.

Hi @bleujay

I appreciate your writing skill and good photography also.

Hi @bleujay and thank you for sharing this beautiful and strong quote, how sometimes we forget about such things and how we do not appreciate to have freedom.

This quote really fits very well to that picture of little butterfly and what I noticed a symbol of Scotland- twistle. May be the Scots decided to choose this flower as it is robust to our cold and rough weather epeically in Highlands. I love that flower and beautiful photography.

Wishing you and your family nice weekend :)

Greetings @stef1,
