Hi All, Butterflies are amazing to meand so fun towatch....their fluttering( they fly only in the daytime),they rest with their wings outstretched or held vertically, like a sail, and I like to watch them drink the nector from the flowers and shrubs, and their colors are so marvelous. Here are a few shots that I got the other day.....Some of these pictures have been cropped more than others. Tell me what you think.It's almost embarassing to post cosidering the other wildlife posts.....but I'm determined to learn....and everyone here seemsvery helpful and very knowledgeable!!!!!! bentleysmom

Hi bentlysmom : Beautiful colurs, beautiful pictures, andI agree with Houston, the compositions are just great. I like them all, but the Buck eye takes the cake. Thanks for sharing your work !!

bentlysmom,

These are really greatpics! Trying to get quality pics like these takes some time, effort and skill. I am also "into" butterflies as well as birds and knowthe frustration of trying to take a photo of a butterfly that won't stay still :?.

Enough with the humble. Do you se me being humble? No.

And picture with picture number two, I would do anything to say I took it.

In fact - I'm claiming I took it! So there!
