For the challenge - did you think it would be anything else but a butterfly?
Now for the sappy commentary:
I have a lot of favorites; favorite people, favorite foods, favorite days, favorite places. I had to
stop and think what favorite thing has really made an impacted on me. Butterflies! About a year
ago, I bought a digital point-and-shoot camera. I started photographing flowers. That lead to
butterflies. Soon I became obsessed with caterpillars and especially the mystical butterfly. I
started gardening and learning about caterpillar host plants and sweet nectar rich flowers.
Eventually I volunteered at a butterfly garden where I met so many wonderful people (gardeners
and butterfly enthusiasts) who share my passion for butterflies. Before you know it, I invested in
a good camera, two lenses and joined a photo club - all so I could take better pictures of the
butterfly. I hope with my pictures I can show people the beauty of the butterfly. Maybe along
my journey of the butterfly I can inspire people to plant milkweed, dill and passion vine to help
keep the butterflies alive and well. It would be a small repayment to thank them for giving
me wings helping me find such joy in photography.
