Hello my friend.

This is a beautiful capture and I am sure a lovely thought to your lost ones. I lost my grandfather and my daughter within a few weeks of each other in 2000. The oldest and youngest member of the family. I miss them dearly and can fully understand your feelings. I like to think they are somewhere together caring for each other. Photography is a nice way to stay in touch and rememeber them by.

TFS regards Helen

Hi Angelo,
How sad you must feel, but I hope you have fond memories of them both to keep in your heart.
This one is as good as the last one - both really splendid and those colours brighten up my day, hope it works for you too.

Hello Angelo,

What a beautiful picture and a fitting dedication to your dearest lost ones! My brother passed away last year and there is still a huge hole where he once was.

Lovely sharp detail, excellent composition and stunning colours.

My best wishes,
Bev :-)

Hello Angello
A superb composition. I like this dominant coloured. The image is clear the parameters of exposure are right. A very good realization. Good day.
In a friendly way

Angelo, a simple and simply gorgeous tribute. The colors you have here complement each other very well. The detail on the butterfly is wonderful and crisp, the flower soft and tender. The line of the stem invites the eye upward to your focal area. The blue of the wings is mirroed in the richer turquoise of the background. Very excellent and fitting work.

The text is touching! I understand that... The day my dad die, i told in my head... I will feel your presence in a particular wind... And i feel that wind sometime... Free to me to remember or not. It's my way to work...
The idea of a blue Monarchs please me a lot!
Very poetic!
