I was watching a butterfly fluttering around in the garden the other day. I knew I wouldn’t be able to identify it until it landed; it could have been one of three kinds of white butterflies we often see around here. (Small White, Large White, Green-veined White).
As I thought, “It’s lovely. It’s name doesn’t really matter. It’s a butterfly and it’s white”, the words of the song from the sixties, “A Whiter Shade of Pale ” by Procol Harum came into my head.
And so my perspective shifted from needing to know an entomological fact to simply enjoying nature whilst reminiscing about my own Swinging Sixties!
The butterfly is a Small White, by the way, but more importantly here’s a link to a favourite song of mine from 1967:
