I spotted some butterflies on my hike along a canal earlier today. But would any of them stay still long enough to be photographed? No way!
loving the moth. great mosaic. ( :
Nice collage of nature snaps.
A lovely collage!!
Beautiful photos. The only one I knew was the blue flag which grows here although I may have seen a couple of the others and just know know what they are. Our world has so many beautiful things.
wow, that wood nymph is gorgeous!
Beautiful mosaic, the wood nymph is my favorite. But, I also love the iris.
Beautiful nature collage. I love that variety of iris.
I really like the vibrancy of the colors with the muted color of the butterfly in the middle. Nice.
The flower shots are exquisite! Love the butterfly!
The wood nymph is striking, even without bright colors.
Another marvelous group.
Great collage...I cannot pick out my favorite. I love the depth of field in all of these.
Oh wow - what lovely lovely shots!
Another collection of gorgeous summery shots!
i saw one of these butterflies in our front yard yesterday, he was sitting in the yellow flowers, i went out with camera and chased him for a while but alas, no photo
I love the unusual color and markings of that butterfly.
I always learn something here. I am missing the monarchs here..so hot and humid and I am sure you have been the same...Michelle
