I spy a “k”

I just found this delightful alphabet poster at one of my favorite blogs, hautenature. The letters are composed from the patterns on butterfly wings. Kjell Sandved actually took up photography just to capture the pristine wings all over the world for the alphabet creation.

Modern man, he says, has lost his ability to appreciate the small things in nature. In particular, he worries about the children. “They have so little access to real things because they’re taken away from the land. In the cities, with only concrete and steel, it’s worst.”

So, if a child can learn the alphabet while learning to see and appreciate nature, then Kjell Sandved will have climbed his mountain. “Small things,” he says, “aren’t something to crush underfoot.”
