Magical Moments

A Magical Moment occurred when we walked the trail at Eco Pond near Flamingo in the Everglades. Butterflies had just taken flight, and it was as though we were walking amid hundreds of ethereal sprites. Southern Whites were most abundant and I wish there were some way I could have captured the magic of their flittering flight, but that is beyond the camera's ability (or at least this cameraman's ability) ....

Other butterflies were also common around Eco Pond and in many other locations, providing many moments of  delightful magic ...

And then there are the butterflies that are so nondescript and/or small, as to exist almost as a figment of the imagination ...

I agree. Butterflies are quite magical. It's hard not to just look at the birds sometimes when there are many other things around us that distract. Beautiful flutter captures.
