    1. Thank you, Paulette. Lucky catch. So far this spring, the butterflies have generally been too flighty to capture.

  3. Hi Ann,

    Just a gorgeous shot! I seem to have more butterflies in my gardens this year, but they don't want to land long enough to be photographed ... lol. Have a great week.

  4. Beautiful photo, Ann! I agree with Donna that the butterflies don't like to be photographed...you know, that's kind of true with animals in general...I always have my cats moving toward me when I bend down to take a picture!
