Yes, move softly, quietly, alertly, and the rewards are breathtaking. I love your prose here which is so close to poetry it is hard to tell where one form ends and another begins. You have observed this natural scene so closely. I feel I am standing there also watching the butterflies and bees and breathing in the sweet, rich, purple smell of the flowers!
