May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

  1. Thank you for sharing this with me, Ann! Love it! We just had the largest yellow butterfly I have ever witnessed, sitting on our tree. I was leaving in my vehicle so I didn’t get a chance to see it very well, but I rolled down the windows and hollered to my wife to get the kids over there. wow, did they have stories to tell when I got home. 😉 ~Creativeness Cool (Darin)

    1. Hi Darin,

      I love the butterfly photo you posted on Facebook. Look forward to seeing more from you. ツ I have a new butterfly post to share soon.


  2. Great photos, Ann.
    Butterflies are some of my most ‘favorite things’ and I paint them quite often. Like Maureen stated above, butterflies have a special significance for many, including me.
    They are difficult to photograph, and you did a great job.
    I am glad to see you are taking time for your photography.

    1. Hi Lori,

      I took this photo of a butterfly recently with my iPhone ツ http://twitpic.com/a904bm

      The butterflies come to me..so it’s not too difficult for me to photograph them. Try intending it…

      Very lucky and grateful ツ

    1. Hi Jessica,

      Talk to them, and they will stay and you will get to capture some amazing images. ツ

  3. Thanks for the beautiful butterfly pictures. Ever since my husband was diagnosed with the big C, butterflies been always near me as signs letting me know that transformation is happening and that all is well.

  4. Indeed butterflies to me are VERY special.. a constant reminder of a daughter that was very special! And like the butterfly that has to emerge from its own cocoon unaided, a mother in grief needs time to gather renewed energy and strength in order for her wings to fly once again. Thank you Ann for these beautiful quotes.. I’ll be back to this page OFTEN. X Jean
