I overexposed this when I took it at the spur of the moment.  I’d been shooting in pretty heavy shade and then spontaneously caught her investigating the hollyhocks at Singh Farms.  I managed to recover some of the shadows during processing and kind of like the ethereal quality of the finished product.  She’s my heart and soul.  I’m so blessed to be her mom!

Q:  Is it possible to become friends with a butterfly?

A:  It is if you first become a part of nature. You suppress your presence as a human being, stay very still, and convince yourself that you are a tree or grass or a flower. It takes time, but once the butterfly lets its guard down, you can become friends quite naturally.” ― Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

Youth is a perpetual intoxication; it is a fever of the mind. ~ François Duc de la Rochefoucauld
