One of the many unique butterfly art pieces in Downtown Colorado Springs. This one is situated in front of First Christian Church on the corner of Platte and Cascade. Every year the butterflies are auctioned off to benefit art programs in our schools.
You can see the sky beyond is dark and ominous. I took this picture over two weeks ago, but as I type this on Thursday afternoon, Manitou Springs is experiencing flooding yet again, thanks to nonstop heavy rains in the last twelve hours (if you haven't heard about our big flood last month, read THIS post and THIS post, the latter from only a couple of days ago). So far there has been one reported death overnight. It's just terrible. I don't know how much more catastrophe we can take in this city. Mother Nature, we need a break!
