Steven and I attended a memorial butterfly release yesterday and had Sam’s name read before they took the lids off the cages. It was a day of lots of flowers and butterflies. The ceremony was beautiful, and the pictures in the slideshow cannot do it justice. It further confirmed my dream of the Gallery of Wings.
Littered in the slideshow are pictures of how we spent our afternoon-hiking in the canyon! We love this particular trail because there are lots of tiny, purple butterflies that like to flutter around our feet and at the banks of the creek. I tried to capture some pictures of those, but they are smaller and a little more “hyper” than monarchs–I couldn’t get them to stand still long enough to snap a picture.
