WW: Painted Lady Butterfly Stowaway

Orange Butterfly Lady Photo

Did you spot my orange butterfly stowaway? What fun fate that the morning after I post Athenianaire's Real Butterfly Jewelry Giveaway, my friend Melissa shares this photo she took of me when we were on a Delaware Bay cruise last summer. I was so intent on capturing a picture of the Tall Ship at sunset that I had absolutely no idea that my messy, windswept hair had attracted a pretty painted lady butterfly!

"Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you."

  5. She seems to know she is a jeweled accessory blending beautifully with your hair color. I love the quote. The arrival of happiness recognized is illusive very much like the departure of pain forgot.

  11. We have a butterfly house at our science museum here in Seattle. It is my happy place every winter. I always hope one will land on me, but chasing after kids and making sure they don't stomp on any never let's me stand still long enough. One of these days though, one of these days!

  14. Ohhh.. butterfly is trying to get your attention. That is very meaningful. When the butterfly paid me a visit, I ended up totally reinventing myself. I totally believe in signs like this. LOVE your pic.. Happy WW.

  15. This is a very special sequence to me...

    My late first wife--who went on to the next plane of existence six years ago yesterday--loved butterflies & adopted them as her soul symbol. We went to visit many live butterfly habitats, & it used to drive her crazy (with a smidge of envy) that butterflies would always seem to land on me!

    Love you always, Abigayl...you're always in my heart....

    Thanks for sharing these photographs, Aquariann.
