Proof positive that butterflies do not have belly buttons !
Waldo/ you got the sun in the right place with this shot,magic result.
Beautiful! And what are these flowers? I'm going to have to plant some next year,,, cheers, pear (battening the hatches and awaiting Irene...)
It was a very obliging Eastern Swallowtail Butterfly Lloyd. B - got about 30 shots as it circled around the flower - I preferred this one because of the backlighting thru the wings !
Hope Irene passes you by with no damage peargrin - these are Ipomopsis Rubra flowers ( Standing Cypress ) and are bi - annuals . I don't believe that they or the butterfly are hurricane proof !
Did you steal that title from me, Waldo??? It's even the same butterfly as mine! :-)
Nice job! Like
Actually mabel65 , I came up with the title all on my own , and after viewing your image , I realized that great minds must think alike !
Fluttered byes scutter high
Scattered hi's clutter skies
Clouded skies mutter sighs
George Orwell perhaps Itallica ?
That's a beauty Waldo.
Hello EagleHunter - this butterfly graced the backyard with it's presence for about 15 minutes , and I haven't seen another since - capture what you can when you can - Panoramio may have a contest , but life does not - enjoy life !
