flutter licious

a native american butterfly legend...

if anyone desires a wish to come true
they must capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.
since they make no sound,
they can't tell the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit.
so by making the wish and releasing the butterfly
it will be taken to the heavens and be granted.

  1. I love these images, Maya and I have a thing for butterflies. Thanks for sharing the legend; I have some wishes I'd like to have come true, now I just need to find and catch a butterfly!

  2. OMG ... is that all I need to do? Just catch a butterfly and whisper sweet nothings to it? Student loans be gone!! just as soon as I can catch one of them things after eva (above)!

    Btw, saw a great pbs special on migration of butterflies from canada, across the US, down to mexico. so amazing what these monarchs go through on their spectacular journey. great work as always lbw!
