A butterfly while on a scenic drive through the Shenandoah National Forrest

While on an overlook on the Shenandoah Scenic drive, I saw this butterfly and it was such a beautiful color contrasting with it's surroundings. It reminded me that we are blessed to be free to enjoy life and should enjoy every moment we have.
