Gorgeous Butterflies

We visited my sister in law last weekend and while I was at her garden, I saw these two gorgeous butterflies feasting on the butterfly bush flowers.

I threw out butterfly bush seeds last fall, but unfortunately didn't get any to grow. Those last 2 shots against the sky are wonderful!

Wonderful photos showing how beautiful butterflies are.

Gorgeous is an understatement. Your series of butterflies with all of their detail is awesome. We had few again this summer. I do not know what is happening in this part of the country. It is very sad. I have to just count on bloggers like you to share your babies with me. genie
