The Spirit of Adventure 2 by BrightStar2 The Spirit of Adventure 2 by BrightStar2
First time being able to capture a good shot of a butterfly...
I had to zoom right in to get this one at the bottom of my garden :frail:
Edited the light and made it a bit darker..cropped to square.

Same as



So when you drive
And the years go flying by
I hope you smile.
If I ever cross your mind
It was a pleasure of my life
And I cherished every time
And my whole world
It begins and ends with you
On that Highway 20 ride....

"Highway 20 Ride" Zac Brown Band's ....
With some beautiful photography - [link]

I actually did drive the highways once, One of the best drives of my life - [link]

“Not all those who wander are lost.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien
We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other,
we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect.
But at every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey.
For those that are still on a journey, see you on the highway sometime.... :heart:

That is SO gorgeous and Red Admirals have a special significance for me. Just after Beau died, one came and settled on me and that's never happened before :-)
