BUTTERFLIES ARE BEAUTIFUL

Butterfly on a flower
I took this picture, several in a row actually, while trying to capture just the right moment...and I did.  The above photo is very pretty and the detail below when I zoomed in is incredible (you can click to enlarge).

I love taking pictures of nature's beauty!

Butterfly closeup
Not sure how much I'll photography I'll get done this weekend.  It's rained most of the week, on and off, and now it's supposed to rain again this weekend.  We'll see how it goes!  Hope you are off to a great start!

That's beautiful. I would have to get into impossible positions to take that....you know, like leaning or squatting! What is the flower it is sitting on?

Gorgeous photos!! I love how the sunlight is glowing through the butterfly’s gossamer wings!

With all the stained glass you'd think you were having a spiritual moment. In one sense, I guess you were.

I'm a semi professional photographer and I have to tell you that is one beautiful photo. You did well!

That looks like a national geographic photo, haha. Maybe you should send it in to them! :---)

Thanks, you are very kind.

Actually I kind of did, ha. And took about 20 to get this one. I'm not sure what that flower is, they are all over the place out there. Weeds of some sort, but pretty weeds. :-)

Glad you noticed that. That's why I wanted the photo so badly, it was SO gorgeous in person. It was just like stained glass.

1st Man said...

LOL, I guess that's true. Definitely stained glass! :-)

1st Man said...

Well, what a nice compliment. I tend to think I just got lucky, ha. Thank you very much.

1st Man said...

LOL, I used to look at those Nat Geo's and marvel at the photography. You are kind to say it's similar. Thanks!

1st Man said...

It was definitely the right catch at the right moment. I'm going to have to try some bird pics soon. Thanks!!!

1st Man said...
