Butterflies have always fascinated photographers and writers Deborah Carney and Vinny O'Hare. In this book they share the first in a series of books featuring their photographs of butterflies with quotes, proverbs and poetry about butterflies. In addition to a quote or poem on each page, the butterfly is also identified. Each of the books in our Butterfly art and photography series will have the butterflies identified.
A Butterfly Lights Beside Us
A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...
and for a brief moment it's glory
and beauty belong to our world...
but then it flies on again, and although
we wish it could have stayed,
we are so thankful to have seen it at all.

All our butterfly photographs are taken of live butterflies in the wild or in sanctioned butterfly conservatories.
