Blogger, Linda Washington at El Space – The Blog of L. Marie is a very talented and compassionate woman.  She has sent me numerous packages filled with colorful crocheted flowers and shoes she just whips up.  When she read that I was ill, she sent me another package with more flowers and a heart.  Her kindness is humbling.

She has written two posts about missing out on opportunities to capture monarch butterflies she sees fluttering, with her camera.  It seems she keeps missing out due to the quick fluttering movements of these gentle flying wonders.   They keep getting away!

Today, as I was getting ready to leave my home, I noticed this Swallowtail butterfly, fluttering around my hanging plant.  Her coloring so bright and beautiful.  I immediately thought of Linda.  I had to get a picture of it.  Click, click, click.  There it remained.

Linda, although it is not a monarch, I wanted to capture this photo and dedicate it to you.  I thank you for your generosity and kindness,
