Living in Butterfly Time

While swimming in the pool on a hot summer day I just so happened to look up and gaze upon the most beautiful sight. A wild butterfly at peace. I jumped out of the pool and ran to get my camera just in time to snap a nice photo before the butterfly flew off into the summer heat.
