This is for you mom!

Hi all,
Hey, I know, it's been awhile since I've blogged but
after reminding myself of the mantra "blogging without obligation" I am proceeding without excuses, lol.
This blog post is for my mom today because lately she has been thinking about butterflies and I remembered that I had taken some photos of this gorgeous creature last summer as it swooped in and out of my garden fluttering and landing on this beautiful lilac flower.
I took a chance by getting up to get my camera to take these pics and sure enough it was still there, almost as if it was waiting for me to photograph it and capture it's beauty with my lens.

Thanks mom for the inspiration, debbie

Happy New Year

Great pictures. Thanks for sharing yours with us. I love butterflies. We went to see the butterflies when we were on a trip to Branson, Missouri. They are so pretty.

Oh Deb these pictures are so beautiful!!! With all this cold and snowy weather we have been having it sure is nice to see signs and memories of summer. I have several butterfly bushes in my yard and the butterflies visit me every year. I can hardly wait for their return!!! Thanks for sharing such lovely pictures.
Stay safe and warm
