Exceptionally common beauty

Female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on Phlox
I recently captured this picture in my neighbor's back yard.  The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail is a common butterfly in Minnesota.  It landed on Phlox, a common flower to this state.  So it seems we have some exceptionally beautiful commoners in this picture!

Abraham Lincoln once commented that "God must love the common man, he made so many of them!"

The self-esteem movement has encouraged us to all think highly of ourselves.  It reminds me that I'm special... just like everyone else!
