  1. You do get some awesome bug shots. These are amazing! Are they archive shots, or have you been back to the butterfly house?

  13. Oh, what beautiful pics! It makes me think that spring might come back...maybe...someday :-) And re. your comment on my concert post - heehee! I am the music industry's dream come true, since I like almost all types of music - it just depends on my mood. However, for Metallica, I wear EARPLUGS :-) *giggle*

  18. I've been raising host plants for years in the garden in the hopes that someday our winged ones would feel welcome and breed. Now, everytime I see wonderful photos like yours, it renews my love of the insect and the promise to help them out. Thank you Lisa!

  19. all very nice. I especially like the first shot -- looks like a greeting card photo. you so could make a calendar. I was at a Butterfly house and could score a single shot. They were flitting all over the place and my aim and shoot is still SLOW.

    I'm in Racine for the helping my parents out - my dad'd been sick and my niece (whom they care for) is a BUSY body. She's weraing me out. So a big Hello from across the state.

  25. I love your flutterbys..

    Please update your link if you have one to my new site. I got tired of doing two sites. I also need more hits to make sure I can continue blogging for spare bits of cash now and then, and I need the links for that, so.... if you please...

  26. I wanted to stop by and congratulation another of Mojo's Diamond in the Rockpile recipients for 2008. And I'm so glad I did. The butterfly macros are stunning. I ready for the weather to warm up again so I can get back out there with my camera.

  27. Gorgeous! I was taking pictures in the school's garden today and I saw a butterfly that had recently emerged from it's cocoon. It was so still, just waiting for me to snap it's first baby picture. :)
