The Summer Dance

Plutselig satt han der!  Jeg hadde akkurat fått kameraet til å fokusere på en enkelt lobelia-blomst, men – plutselig valgte kameraet et nytt og mer spennende fokuseringspunkt? Jeg hadde fått besøk!
Suddenly he was there! I had just managed to make the camera focus on a single lobelia flower, but suddenly the camera switched to a newer and more exiting focal point?
I had a visitor!
En staut ‘neslesommerfugl’! Og siden han på en måte ødela mitt første forsøk, så gjorde vi en rask avtale om at han foretok en liten runddans mens han spiste frokost slik at jeg også kunne fotografere hans festantrekk for dagen?

A frisky looking Nettle Butterfly! And since he kind of ruined my first shot, we came to an understanding that he would perform a small dance whilst eating breakfast in order to enable me to shoot some pictures of his party outfit for the day?
‘Wow!  Litt av noen farger du har der!’
‘Takk!  Liker du antrekket mitt?’

‘Wow! Some colors you’ve got there, friend!’
‘Thank you! Do you like my outfit?’

.
.
Si meg: Med slike iøyenfallende farger, er ikke du redd for at du selv skal bli middagsmat for en eller annen sulten fugl?

Tell me: Witgh all those bright colors – aren’t you nervous that you suddenly might become dinner for some hungry bird flying by?
‘Nei, ikke noe særlig. Da foretar jeg mitt berømte forsvinningsnummer: Nå ser du meg – og plutselig er jeg borte! Det handler om a bli en del av naturen!’

‘No, not really! Then I’ll perform my famous disappearing act: Now you see me – and now I’m all gone! It’s all about blending in with the nature around you!’

Ah, slurp – denne var virkelig god!
Ah, blurp – this was really excellent!
‘Det er litt langt ned i enkelte av disse, men foreløpig rekker jeg akkurat ned!’
‘It’s a bit far down into some of these, but for the time being I’ll manage!’
.
Ooops!  Der tråkket jeg nesten utenfor, gitt!
Men nå som jeg er nær nok til å hviske: Si meg – er du sterkt plaget av virus på en blogg som denne?

Ooops! I nearly stepped outside here!  But – now that I’m on a ‘whispering distance’:
are you hampered by virus operating a blog like this one?
‘Nah! Ikke noe særlig. Dessuten har vi jo systemer som skal beskytte oss mot denslags!’
‘Nah, not really! Besides we do have systems engineered to prevent tht sort of thing!’

‘Hah! Men du har vel merket at SPAM slipper igjennom? Har du ikke undret deg på hvorfor?  Og hvordan det kan ha seg at alt kommer samtidig? Og hvorfor det plutselig kommer haugevis av linker isteden for bare vilkårlige tekster?’

‘Hah! But you must have noticed that SPAM is slipping through? Have you never contemplated why? And how it all seems to arrive in batches? And why todays SPAM seem to long lists of active links instead of random texts?’
Jo, når du sier det slik, så husker jeg jo at det kom et dusin slike SPAM som alle inneholdt 7-10 hyperlinker?!  Hva vet du om dette?

Ingenting, egentlig, men man får jo litt rare tanker? For dersom du holder pekeren over slike linker, så vil du se at ting lastes opp og at alle linker synes å være registrert på en ‘vegg’ merket med en ganske velkjent ‘W’, og så kan du jo fortsette å undre deg . . .?

Yes, when you say it like that, I do remember that on last occasion I received 7-10 such SPAM’s which all included 7-10 such hyperlinks! What do you know about this?
Nothing really, but one gets strenge thoughts?  Because if you hold your mouse on such links, you’ll notice that things are loading and – that these links seems to be naailed to a ‘wall’ marked with a very familiar ‘W’, which again will make you wonder . . .?
Men du, nå må jeg videre! Tusen takk for frokost. Håper bildene ble bra?
Også finner du sikkert ut av dette SPAM-problemet om du bare stiller spørsmålet til riktig person – under forutsetning at noen vil snakke med deg da!?

But, Now I’ve got to fly along! Thanks a heap for a nutritious breakfast. I hope your pictures came out all right? And I’m sure you will be able to sort ou this SPAM-problem once you find the right guy to answer your questuons? Provided anyone wishes to talk to you!

(Compliments of SRB)
Please return me to INDEX for a new destination

    Your friend, Mr. Butterfly is quite the entertainer, Svein. Could it be Mr. Butterfly is wise beyond his delicate appearance?

      Oh, I don’t know! The world must be filled with intellectuals better suited than me to sound the alarm,
      but when personal ambitions and greed seem to cloud the vision of where this world is going, at least I may utter a small squeek?
      And after all – I have been living on Mother Earth for some time now?! I observe, and I’m not overly impressed!
      I think people in many parts of the world might find that their personal social security nets will be failing in the very near future?
      And then what?

    • Seenorway says:

      And yes, there seems to be a message there somewhere? 🙂

  3. Wonderful set of images dear Svein, love these butterflies.. 🙂

    🙂 Well, if I found a way to make people read what we write, it would be all the more interesting to leave a comment once in a while, don’t you think? Unfortunately we have tested this for years, and most people don’t seem to read at all? Several times we have written a short post solely in Norwegian (no picture included) and received 20-30 ‘likes’ from all over the world. I wonder why?! Norwegian has never been a wworld language!

  5. You are just cracking me up today! Loving the exchange between you two 🙂 . Great photos too….as usual 🙂
