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.
And at least we caught them on film.
