oh wow! this is such a great treat! i believe butterflies are one of the loveliest winged creatures... i don't mind that they eat a lot of leaves during their "caterpillar stage"... their beauty is worth it... and my fave is the last 5 macro shots... the butterfly on 2nd and the 3rd to the last photos looks cheeky:)
Thanks to you and your husband for the color today!
Good Hubby of yours!
What a wonderful husband =) They came out great. Love 'em.
the url i used has pictures of i took at the "travelling butterfly show" that came here. i loved taking photos of them.
What photography blahs?! From your posts at least, I have seen nothing but your usual beautiful work! (Still daydreaming about those snowflakes...) Lovely butterfly pics. Hope the blahs go away, and keep the pics coming!
I recognize some of these critters from our Butterfly World...I love going there. That's where my parrot shots come from too.
Give your husband a kiss for taking you there. These pictures are amazing!
These are just beautiful, I wish I had had my new camera with me when I visited the butterfly exhibit.
Oh, you have given me a place to visit...would love to see it. And to see it in the winter, bet that helps with the winter blues we all seem to be having.
oh wow! Those are so beautiful!!! I love butterflies! You hubby is the best!!!
It's been 13 years since I've been in a butterfly garden. My soul is yearning, because of your photos.
So pretty, Lisa. Our local Living Museum usually plays host to Monarchs. Their chrysalis is so beautiful with the rings of gold on them.
I was going to ask where on god's green earth you lived that you had winter ALONG with butterflies. neat pics.
These are wonderful!
OOHH wow!! I would love to be in one of those places!! beautiful pictures as usual!!!
WONDERFUL!!! :)))Like a dream in January. :)
Oh I like the way your hubby thinks, the color is so welcome right about now!!
Your hubby loves you!! But I'll bet you knew that already!!Wonderful pictures, exotic colours in the middle of winter!!
Please thank the hubster for us. These are magnificent! I especially like the last one and the one somewhere in the middle that looks like him. Awesome work!
How fun! I loved going to our Butterfly Exhibit over the summer too. They are one of the coolest things to photograph. You really captured some beautiful flutters. My favorite is the 3rd form the bottom. So crisp!
these are wonderful shots! sho sharp! i love butterfly houses.
I love the butterfly museum in the winter...it's so warm! Thanks for taking us along;)
Very nice pictures. I hope your husband got you out of your funk. Take care
WONDERFUL ... I loved ALL these butterflies so much I can't choose a favorite even though I've tried! Give 'hubby' a hug from ME.Hugs and blessings,
Pretty butterflies! I think that with all this snow I could use some more color too!Is winter over yet? *sigh*
Gorgeous, and a welcome sight here in the long, dark days of winter. Thanks for these!
Really great shots. I saw some puddling behavior and lots of rolled up tongues. Great close-ups.
Lisa, these are really beautiful!
nice shots Lisa. I should visit the zoo on a trip to the US.
