A summer of butterflies πŸ¦‹

The weather outside is cool. The sun is beautiful, but the desert is dry and void of summer colors.

Photos are a great way to go back in time and relive the beauty. It is a reminder that spring is soon to come. It brings hope of flower blossoms and summer butterflies.

If you want to see some of the butterflies I’ve photographed this past year, check out my butterfly page here πŸ¦‹

May we never forget the beauty and joys of yesterday.

May we never lose hope for the happy adventures to come!

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

  9. The beautiful photos reminded me of Naya Rivera’s: β€œButterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.” Thank you for sharing the beauty!

    1. Thank you!! I sure hope we get as many of them again this summer. Maybe I will see more, regardless, because I will be more aware of their presence 😊
