Beautiful butterflies. I haven't seen many here this year in Ontario, I'm not sure why, so it's great to see yours.

Stunning shots of an elusive subject. Beautiful!

Lee Spangler said...

Treasure these. They are lovely shots. It is nice to see them this way and not pinned in someone's collection. These pix bring joy to all of us.

Small City Scenes said...

Regarding the fish: I don't think they are edible---maybe if you were starving---and the boys think since they have a spiny face that they are poisonous. Mebbe so!! MB

Wow, great color and nice composure on the butterfly!

Asta said...

One word: w-o-w

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scene - That's kind of what I figured. Smart kids! I believe the puffer fish I alluded to are also poisonous.

Seems like for some reason this time, my comment didn't go through! I loved these beautiful pictures! Nice closeups of the butterflies! I've tried shooting butterflies but have never been so successful yet. Still trying! :-)
