Butterfly friend

Can you see the butterfly's friend behind the window screen? :-)

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

What fantastic pictures! Glad you pointed out the "friend". I think I would have missed it.

basketsnprims said...

Wow, Shelley ~ what an amazing shot! I'm always amazed by your photos.

Catherine Holman said...

What an amazing photo! It took me a minute to see your cat in the photo, but this is really precious!

Penny said...

Beautiful shots. I am enjoying your blog. I am from Michigan originally (like the other Penny) and I love the Northern part of the state. Is your cabin in the UP? Guess I will have to read more of your posts. Thanks for visiting my blog.

April said...

That is SO COOL!! I think Marvin was ready to POUNCE!

Busy Bee Suz said...

awww...this is just adorable. I hope Marvin knows that pretty soon, the butterfly's will not be so patient with Scout around the house!!!

Sandi Keene said...

What great shots! Your talent shines!

Karen said...

Shelley! When Mark does finally give in and decide it is time - YOU GOT THE SALE!!!
I don't think either of us should get too excited very quickly . . . (hehehe) but ya just never know!!!
That's what the lottery is for - winning - right!?!

Pam at Antique or Not said...

What a fabulous picture! And we're all waiting with bated breath for pics of Scout in her new home...

rosemarie said...

Oh that's beautiful! I don't think we have butterflies like that here, at least I have never seen one.
And great picture of Marvin behind the screen! That's a winning shot.

Those photos of Marvin and the butterfly are amazing! What a great capture Shelley!!!

Star said...

ooooh those pictures are scrumptious, truly scrumptious!

Leedra said...

Great capture. Is that a Red Spotted Purple? The 2nd is better, just because you can see Marvin more.

This DVM's Wife's Life said...

Such a great capture and moment of your handsome Marvin! Very cute!

Jen said...

Good kitty Marvin!
Looks like he has taken after his mom and enjoys it all too.

Heather said...

OMG Shelley, you are going to make us all explode with these cute pictures of Marvin and Scout. I can't stand it! I really loved in the other post how the stuffed bun had his arm around Marvin while he was napping. I'm so excited for you getting to bring Scout home this weekend!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Beautiful! You know I love butterflies....

The White Bench said...

Love pictures and words...
You REALLY are able to capture Nature's beauty, Shelley!

That is an awesome, awesome photo. Love it. Sure is butterfly season up here in the north, huh? We've had tons. Swallowtails (I think) mostly.

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Marvin definately seems to be enjoying his front row seat. I love watching our 'girls' sitting in the windows. I swear the birds deliberately tease them.

Take Care,

Kath said...

wow-Great photos Shelley! :)

Only 2 more days..........right???
I am so excited for you!!

Have a HAPPY Weekend!


The Retired One said...

Soooooo cute!
I love Marvin's innocent curiousity of the butterfly!!
Great shot!

NCmountainwoman said...

Fantastic photographs! But somehow, I'm not sure Marvin really wants to be a friend.

Tami said...

Seriously cool shot!

George said...

Marvin is certainly intently studying the butterfly in that first photo. Both are absolutely great pictures. Very well done!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Love those photos Shell---with the kitty on the other side of the screen. That butterfly can entertain kitty for hours I'm sure...

Hope you have had a great week.
Love you,

Dixxe's Doodles said...

Small pines - we've had quite a few swallowtails and monarchs as well!

Debbie - Marvin has a red squirrel that likes to tease him thru the window - poor kitty!

Hi Kath - yes, 2 more days! I've been waiting YEARS for this day!

Retired One - he's more vicious w/ the house flies - lol!

NC - I'm afraid you're right!

Tami - thanks!

George - I think Marvin was trying to think how long it would take him to bite thru that screen, ha,ha!

Hi Betsy - can't wait to hear about your anniversary trip! Marvin is certainly easily amused - loL!

Dixie - glad you got your gift and like it!

Grammy - if Marvin had front claws, i think he would've too!

Wow, I can't belive you respond to each comment, what a sweetie. Will you really be making note cards? I want some too!

Love it! (My husband had to point out the kitty though)

Shelley, these photos need to be published somewhere and you need to be paid handsomely for them!!!!
