This photo was taken in October here at Leland Iron Works. To me Sulphur Butterfly is heart-stopping—nearly perfect.

Lee and Susan were traveling in South America some years ago (you can see the word “jungle”on the right) when they came across a column of yellow butterflies. It was one of those moments in life, nearly perfect and not to be repeated.

With bright yellow vine maple leaves behind the sculpture and pink cyclamens at its feet, Sulphur Butterfly seems to capture and hold magic.
