Tricky catch

My son caught this beautiful male *Eastern Swallowtail Butterfly with a 'Gandolf" move. 

If you don't know what that means, we can't be friends. 

Just kidding! 

We can be friends.

But you really need to watch Lord of the Rings :)

I did a little editing in Picmonkey to give it an ethereal look. 

Totally missed between my son's fingers. 

But it's a fun photo, anyway.

*no butterflies were harmed. he flew happily away into the wilderness after I took the photo.

I also used this un-ethereal (?) version of the photo for my Take 52 Challenge a few weeks ago:

What do you think? Ethereal or not?

Have a blessed weekend!


  1. We often used to see these lovely butterflies in our French garden, but have never seen them in England.

  2. haha... oh Anne, I'm laughing about your Gandolf comment :) I'm pretty sure I know what that means so I hope we can still be friends *smiles*

    LOVE the picture and what you did with it - beautiful job. Hugs to you!


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
