  1. Great pictures, aren't butterflies beautiful? I had a butterfly in the house the other day and tried to get a picture of it, but it wouldn't stay still long enough. Poor thing was probably just desperate to get away.

    My mom always loved butterflies, and seeing them always brings her to mind.

    Thank you! Your photos are gorgeous.

  13. You are a superb photographer! Those pictures are winners I love swallowtails even though they start out kinda creepy before they get their wings.

    (Yes, It's me without my Mrs. Potato Head mask. MPH belongs to Hasbro and I decided I needed an icon that wasn't owned. The crow in my back yard may object, but what can he do?)
