Summer Memory #30-Butterflies

I love taking photos of butterflies in the backyard.

This Monarch was particularly photogenic.

He was also very patient with me.

I didn’t even have my zoom lens on the camera when I took these.  He flew from flower to flower, but he let me follow him around and take his photo on all the different color flowers.

This guy was rather skittish.  He didn’t hang out very long.

This tiny fellow kept chasing him away.

Until he finally ended up in the tomatoes. (You can tell I took these earlier in July when everything was green instead of yellow and kind of parched.)

I love butterflies. 

Happy Wednesday!
