Visit of the Butterfly

Butterflies are magical creatures.

They seem so delicate, like flying pieces of art.

When they alight on a flower, it's breathtaking.

They flutter and disappear in an instant.

Imagine how it felt to see one perch on my daughter's pant leg!

We were all totally amazed and ran for cell phone cameras. 

Wish the photos snapped for this post had come out clearer.

Some people believe a visit by a butterfly indicates someone from the other realm of life is sending a message. 

If that's true, I wonder who it was and what he or she wanted to say.

In any event, the butterfly's visit was very joyful.

Oh Susan, how special that a butterfly landed on your daughter's pants. I chuckled when you said they are like "flying pieces of art." I think those are the best words to describe them.....perfect. I hardly ever get pictures of the butterfly cause they fly away so quickly, so I bet you were surprised and thrilled when this butterfly came around. It's such a pretty one with orange specks all over it. It made my day. : )

love, ~Sheri

I know they are beautiful and very interesting life span. It is so short and they change so fast. sandie

You were lucky to get a picture of the butterfly before it flew away. We have monarch butterflies and many are in my yard all year round . They are so beautiful. Love them..I bet your granddaughter was thrilled.
