I finally captured a butterfly on one of our new butterfly bushs!!!! YIPEE! Why don't butterflies cooperate when they know darn well they're "going to be in pictures"?

I bought seven bushes in early spring; what with the weather I felt they would soon croak. Alas, they are alive and blooming despite the odds.

Enjoy.

PS Hope I get that new lens I've been looking at, at least for my birthday (Jim).

Cindy

I hope that's a macro lens with zoom you get, Cindy!

In doing some work for Norfolk Botanical Gardens and others, butterflies are indeed the hardest things to capture . . . but well worth the effort! Fascinating creatures, and artworks of Nature.

Finally someone has got the name correct!
I've always called them "flutterbys" I suppose "butterfly" is a corruption because it is eaiser to say butterfly as opposed to flutterby.
Be that as it may that is a great picture Cindy thanks for sharing it.
