A Bug's Life

iPhoto taken with Instagram in North Lake, WI - June 3, 2012

Yesterday, I was walking in the tiny town of North Lake when I spotted these lovely pale pink rose bushes.  I leaned in for a closer look and a whiff of their fragrance when I noticed this tiny bright green bug who was also enjoying the roses.  This image reminds me of a charming French quotation:

« L’amour a son instinct; il sait trouver le chemin du Cœur comme le plus faible insecte qui marche 
à sa fleur avec une irrésistible volonté qui ne s’épouvante de rien. »  – Honoré de Balzac

"Love has it's own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeble insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside." - Such a lovely sentiment!
