"Smiley" - A Paperkite Butterfly by 

I am naming this Paperkite Butterfly, “Smiley”, for obvious reasons. Its hard to not see what appears to be a big happy smile on his face. I have noticed this with other Paperkites before, but also noticed not all of them have the same exactly “look”. So its just something else in nature, that brings a big smile to my face. :)

Taken with my Nikon D5100 and Macro Lens.

I love nature and everything in it. If I can capture it with my camera in a way that is meaningful, that is something that brings me great joy.

I am a mother to two wonderful boys, and wife. I have come to learn that life is very precious, and flying by. What we do matters, and appreciating the beauty in life is one of its great gifts to us.

Hoping to travel more in the future, continue to get to know my camera, as well as continue capturing what I can with it.
