17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Butterflies of perseverance.

I love running, but last year I had an accident and surgery on my right knee. For that reason I can't run as I used to do. My wife told me to do something different to improve my mood, so, yesterday, I took the camera (I am not a photographer) and I was walking to try to capture something beautiful, when I was amazed by the beauty of these Monarch butterflies that are passing through, maybe wanting to give me forces to move forward, just as they have to travel so far and not give up.
