I had a long busy day so I will ask your forgiveness for my lack to text. Instead please enjoy the beauty of the Hot Springs National Park and its glorious residents. At the end of my hike I met the lovely lad pictured above, he watched quietly as I was photographing lovely Red-Spotted Purple Butterflies. He looked at me and gesture as if he were holding a camera and then pointed at himself. He was overjoyed when I held up my camera to take his picture and flashed the peace sign. Children are so beautiful and natural, it was a joy to take his photograph.
Much Love to You All,
