Natural Beauty

On a hike through Colorado I was always the one lagging behind, caught in awe of the natural beauty; the green mountains, vibrant flowers, and gorgeous cloudy skies. This butterfly stopped me dead in my tracks. It's perfection of placement of this beauty and it's surroundings made this a view I never wanted to forget.
