I have tried both birds and butterflies myself, and they are not easy! Reply Thank you, John. They are sprightly characters indeed! Reply The butterfly shots were wonderful. Do more! Reply Thanks, Allen! Will do 🙂 Reply i cant choose a favorite. all are gorgeous. Reply 🙂 Reply Spectacular shots, Cindy. And are the lilacs truly in blossom by you? If I were a butterfly, I would plant myself on one of the bushes and not fly again until every one of those flowers had disappeared. The perfume is so heady, I can only imagine what the nectar must be like. Butterfly drugs. And the hummingbird shots are stunning as well. Spring is here! Reply I was thrilled when I moved into this house that there was a lilac bush. We’ve had a lot of rain, so they are profuse and intoxicating. Soon you will see spring! Reply I see those types of yellow butterflies often in the spring. They’re so pretty! Reply Hi! Seems like they were absent for many years–then, this spring they are everywhere. And huge! Reply Oh my, these are sooo gorgeous, what a perfect way to celebrate first day of Spring Cindy! Reply I never wanted to go inside! It was fun just hanging out on the deck all day. Truly relaxing 🙂 Reply How lucky! Well it’s supposed to hit almost 60 next week over here, fingers crossed!! 🙂 Reply Cindy, once again these are fabulous. You have such a great eye. I wishhhhh we were getting some spring weather. So wet and damp here. But at least I can look at these pictures and know it is on the way! 😉 Reply Sorry your spring is late arriving–I appreciate your kind thoughts regarding my photography. It’s a fun hobby outside of film watching and writing. Cheers 🙂 Reply It may be a hobby, but you’re VERY VERY good at it. Reply Ta, my friend! Reply They are all beautiful! Reply Thank you, Kate 🙂 Reply Gorgeous. We are all snow here! Reply Soon, for you–soon! Reply Cindy, these are stunning pictures. I just love hummingbirds. Reply Even though they “stand still” in the air before they alter their course, they are most tricky to catch on film. Thanks, Malcolm. Reply These are so beautiful. Reply Hi Vinnieh! Thanks, my friend. Reply Always happy to be of service Cindy. Reply OOO nice. love hummingbirds. don’t get them around here. so when i travel it’s a special thing. Reply Love the upside down butterfly. It’s not easy to capture the butterfly, I tried photographing the ‘Ulysses Blue’, in Kurranda, Australia (back in June 2008), I couldn’t get a single clear picture with a still butterfly. They move swiftly and nonstop. WELL DONE!!! Reply Thank you so much! Wow, I would have loved to photograph a ‘Ulysses Blue’ in Australia. That continent has the most interesting critters on it. Reply Ha!! Good Luck!! If do manage to get a Ulysses Blue to stand still, more power to you 🙂 Reply I ♥ comments. Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
