I do not seem to have the hours to just look out my window or wander the woods behind my house. These days find me driving, putting lots of miles on my car back and forth to my mom's and taking her to see my dad. This isn't how either of them wanted it but we find ourselves here and can't figure out a way to make it better. One afternoon while trying to catch up on a little housework, a butterfly caught my eye in the backyard so I stepped outside. I cropped the first shot, realizing I caught a glimpse of a humminbird. I am grateful for this patch of color. Five of the six butterfly bushes survived the winter.
