Life Is Like a Camera

Photographer Julia Wade and her husband, Jonathan, were photographing butterflies just for fun in our private butterfly zoo when this Monarch landed on Julia’s camera and Jonathan recorded the moment.

I saw this quote which seemed to be a perfect match: “Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don’t turn out – take another shot.”
