~All A Flutter...And An Award!

~All a flutter ....
In Black~n~Blue!

~A symbol of Hope~
A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam,
And for a brief moment its beauty and
glory belong to our world.
But then if flies again,
And though we wish it could
have stayed...We feel
lucky to have seen it!
~Author Unknown~

~Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting,
Small but approachable, Butterflies lead you
into the sunny side of life. . .
And everyone deserves a little sunshine! :)
~Jeffrey Glassburg

~Lovely ORANGE on ORANGE against BLUE!
All a flutter...
~And an AWARD below! :)

Congrats on the award! You must have a lot of patience -- I can never get any good butterfly pics! They are all beautiful, but I love the blue ones best. Gorgeous!

The black and blue is great. Have you ever printed your work large. say 16x20 or larger? Would look awsome I am sure.

It's great fun to capture butterfly and insect pic's. You have to shoot several to get a good one. Been shooting RAW to get all the delicate detail. See ya later.

Great blog. Butterfly pictures ARE hard to get.

I went for a walk last night and saw 5 different species--and didn't have my camera. That goes to show that walking for health is not compatible with photography;)

I forgot to mention the poem. I really like it. It expresses how I feel about butterflies.

It is interesting and amazing to see the various sorts of butterflies you have. They are so different to the ones we can see here.
