Simply beautiful..... Happy Friday Michelle, Blessings Francine.
BEAUTIFUL Red Admiral!!
Beautiful shots. Not seeing any of those around here right now!
Love the time lapse photos. It will be a while before the butterflies return to my part of the world. Warm today, but an arctic front is to arrive tomorrow. Back to the deep freeze.
Great shots, it's always difficult capturing things at close range that move quickly. I get the idea of the three pictures in a row opening the wings to display the beautiful colours.I find digital cameras helpful in that there is no fear of taking too many photos to get the perfect shot. My camera experiences with this kind of creature haven't been too successful as I spend 5 minutes lining up a shot :-)
We had an unbelievable amount of these this spring. They were everywhere....:)
Hi Michelle, Great captures and a wonderful thought! John
beautiful! can't wait till we are seeing these again!btw...i made your pot roast sliders last night, they were delish! i just made the roast like you did and then shredded it. i got these cute mini ciabatta rolls from walmart that are slider size. i topped mine with havarti cheese and the kid's with cheddar/moz then toasted. they were yummy! perfect end to a snow day, thanks!
interesting quote. beautiful butterfly!
Great shots they are stunning, and the message hit home for me this week:) B
Wow! How gorgeous. I am always amazed by nature. Have a great weekend, Michelle :)
...and I am not even a bird of Paradise!
Perfect quote, wonderful photos.
Love the photo of the butterfly.I have always wanted to be a butterfly-what a beautiful diet of flowers they have.Cindy
Perfect! You found the secret.
Lovely words and photos, Michelle. xx
Young Junebugs are inexperienced, though. Pretty captures. The feeling of spring/summer in this photo makes me suspect you dipped into the archives for this post.
Wow, that is very pretty.. the red on it is gorgeous!((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Yes, time is the only thing which makes me afraid. Please have a good weekend you all.
Beautiful shots of your dramatically colored butterfly. -- barbara
