Butterflies are Free...

Just a bit of eye candy today, nothing special. I've been cleaning out the folders on my computer, and noticed I had many butterfly images. So...you're gonna get a dozen pictures of butterflies! I'm not even gonna take the time to ID them this time around...not only too lazy, but I wanna get back to cleaning up this set of archive folders.  I have an overload of many photos that are useless...

  1. They sure are pretty. You want to see useless photos, you should see some of the ones I have on my computer.

  2. When my Mom was in Hospice we asked her how we would know she was near. She said we would see beautiful butterflies and that would be her.

  5. Your shots are amazing and beautiful! "Native American legends say that if you have a secret wish, hold a butterfly and whisper your wish to it. Since butterflies cannot speak, your secret is ever safe in their keeping. Release the butterfly, and it will carry your wish. When we release our butterflies during a remembrance ceremony, we send our whispers to our children and siblings, carried on the wings of the butterflies."
