I grew up vacationing in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Every summer we would spend a few days at the Peaks of Otter Lodge near Bedford, VA, right on the Blue Ridge Parkway. What a beautiful, serene place. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a thing of beauty. The views from the overlooks are spectacular.

I remember once we stopped to stretch our legs. Not far off the parkway was a creekbed. The rocks in the creek were covered with what looked like Monarch butterflies. They might have been a different species but were orange and black in color. They were resting on the rocks and fluttering around the creek. I've never seen anything like it before. It was breathtaking.

Beautiful photo you included of the rose.

Hey there Sunflower,

Thank you for sharing that memory. It is those moments that matter most in life. There is a beauty in the natural world that cannot be duplicated. It is important to get out there and see it and take part in preserving it. That image of those butterflies will be with you for the rest of your life and what an image to carry with you.

That is a beautiful photo and the photographer has been given a link to the article so he will definitely appreciate your kind words.

I wish you nothing but the best.
