Magpie Tales #255

My goodness!
Such surprising rudeness
I thought butterflies
Only gave kisses
And not black eyes!
~~~~~
 
Gosh darn it
I thought I was meeting
A prince
Not a monarch....

Even white knights have fists and cause bruises.. better leave them alone.. very good take with the monarch.. the regal haughtiness that hurts.

Very well done, but I really think it's a kiss. Excellent shot and very well executed.

Have a fabulous day. Hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

But I see four additional eyes on the butterfly--they're black too.
