In that last post, I let the butterflys… wait… butterflies? Seriously, spellchecker, that makes them sound like flies… Anyway, I let those gorgeous insects speak for themselves. This time, I will be their spokesperson. I’m sure they won’t mind.
I don’t think that one is a Monarch, but it is still nice. My great butterfly day started in my mom’s garden. I got the first few shots there, and figured I was doing pretty good, because it is hard to get a butterfly to sit still for a photo.
So I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood where I grew up.
The people next door at some point must have planted their entire front yard with magic butterfly-attracting plants.
I have never had such an easy time taking so many photos of so many butterflys… yes, I know, spellchecker, I am not playing your sick game!
There were dozens of them flying around, and they even seemed to stay on the flowers for a longer time than is usual.
And the flowers were nice too. I love the color purple.
Gotta love the zoom lens.
I cropped a few of these pictures a little, but that’s it.
Most are just as I took them.
I like that the tiny flowers are in focus, the butterfly is almost in focus, and the flowers in back are just blobs of purple. That is pure art… by accident.
Amazing beauty! Well done!
Thank you so much.
