Green Thumb Sunday

Join



Isn't this a great shot? The butterfly is actually on the flower but it appears that I caught it in flight. The swallowtails are easy to photograph because they are so tame. I can literally walk right up to them. The monarchs are much shyer.

What a great photo! You're right...before I read your description I thought you were photographing the butterfly in flight. I can't wait to see butterflies again!

I also thought it was in flight! That is an amazing picture.

I can never get good butterfly pictures because when I go grab the camera, my 9 year old daughter grabs her butterfly net. The butterfly learns really quick to get away from us!

I can hardly wait to chase butterflies again!

Colleen and Marc, I'm with you! I can't wait for butterflies. Marc, I never go out into my yard without my camera. I learned to do that the hard way by missing some really great shots.
