This is a way cool story that I only recently found out about. Sept. 2006 I photographed Mikala & Chad's wedding. As they were walking out after the ceremony, a monarch butterfly landed on her bouquet just long enough to be pose for a photo.
Later, I found out that her family has come to view the monarch as a symbol for her late grandfather. On several occasions since he passed, monarch butterflies have made appearances at special family functions, including her wedding.
Isn't that neat? I just love stuff like that. :)
