Arabella’s butterfly wishes

“You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.” — Anonymous
Oh, if this were only true!  These pictures show Arabella patiently waiting for a butterfly to land on her outstretched finger at Callaway Garden’s Butterfly Pavilion.  I still become a little brokenhearted remembering her disappointment at her failure.  I wanted nothing more than for one of those beautiful creatures to land on that tiny finger – just once.  It never happened.  Fortunately, however, my sweet little girl still holds fond memories of that day and doesn’t carry a grudge against the fickle butterflies.
