While walking around the state park I came to these Milkweed flowers with these butterflies on them. Can’t resist a butterfly!

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    Very pretty! I don’t see many in my yard this year. Not sure why either!:(

  • Thank you Paw, I do believe things are changing all over, strange shifts in the weather patterns and nothing is as it use to be!

    Wow this is an excellent capture. You got so close!

  • Thank you so much, I’m just lucky that I have a decent zoom on my camera that allows me to get close without actually scaring them away!
