Hear Paul perform the
Dear Mr. Dalton,
I am writing for permission to use one of your monarch butterfly photographs on my son's
memorial website. I lost my son in May 2007 and since that time I have been building the website.
The content continues to grow, but now I need to begin making it look nicer.

know which image you are after - I presume the butterfly is in flight and has bluish
I am so sorry to hear about the death of your son - having four children of
my own I can only imagine what you and your family must be going through.
With kind regards
Mr. Stephen Dalton has most graciously allowed us to use his lovely and amazing Monarch
butterfly photograph for the site. His website contains many more magical photographs.
