Butterfly morning

I really love my new camera. I also love zinnias and butterflies. And when you put all three together this is what you get. I recently planted some new white and yellow zinnias. The butterflies love them. This morning my entire front yard was full of butterflies. In addition to these yellow and orange butterflies, I spotted a Small back one and also one Monarch butterfly. They left before I could get the camera but at least I got these. I hope you enjoy your Sunday and these pictures. If you turn on your sound you will hear my pond fountain which is hidden inside these Mexican Petunias. I could sit there and watch them for hours.


Have a wonderful Sunday, Greg

These are some wonderful pictures, Greg! Happy you made it through the "storm" unscathed. It was supposed to bring us 3 to 5 inches of rain, and we got about an inch. Poor kids and dog had to spend the day indoors, moping. Loved your weather goggles, too! Enjoy your sunshine (BTW, the clouds never even made it to my sons in Charlotte, let alone rain).

So pretty.....I wish I had that many butterflies in my backyard! Next year, I will be sure to plant the flowers they like :)

I loved the video - wonder if there's a way to attract butterflies......

Brooke said...

Wow! How relaxing! You must submit these photos to National Geographic or something. The butterflies are gorgeous! I love how beautifully God created everything. Thanks for capturing and sharing!!

Greg your pictures are spectacular. Is it the photographer or the camera? ;-) just kidding. I'm glad your world is back to normal and that you're enjoying your camera.

A new camera? Is it a digital SLR? It's been on my list of "want to have's" for a while! Your pictures are gorgeous...love the butterflies and flowers!

Have fun!
