I was so happy this butterfly lingered long enough for me to
capture it on "film".

This was just a few minutes ago!

Look, and see it's proboscis (sp?) dipping into the cup of the lantana.
Even butterflies have lunchtimes, eh?

Here's a fuller shot:

I :heart: butterflies!


Ever been to a butterfly house? there's one on the University of Gainesville campus, and another butterfly sanctuary in Milwaukee, Wis.

IF you are blessed to go to a butterfly house, WEAR RED OR YELLOW, and a butterfly will land on you, thinking you're a flower!

a CANON DIGITAL REBEL, and, a zoom lens with an image stabilizer.

very handy to have, when the hands get tired.

Thank you! That's so pretty. I've been bitten by the spring bug now that it's march, but I see the "s" word in the forecast. We have a butterfly exhibit that we go to every year and tonight we get to go and search for them with flashlights! Sooo cool!! Thanks for sharing...

You ought to go in the daytime, too, and take a decent camera.
I use my macro lens for extreme closeups, plus, using photoshop.
I took this photo with the zoom lens, then downloaded it into photoshop, and zoomed in, cropped, and all that.
I hope you get to take some photos of butterflies during the day, at that place. The cocoons are interesting, too!

Photolady, nice camera choice. Which lens did you sport on there? I was looking at the Rebel XTI with the a dual lens package. But had to hold out :( I have to make do with my handy Sony DSC-W100. I am not complaining. I'd like to master that camera one day. But it is handy to take mpegs of DD's "Party Days" for preschool. (An end of month do the kids put on for the parents to show them what they had learned that month.)
