  6. Wowza! Spectacular images. I particularly love the last one because the proboscis is inserted so perfectly in the center of that bloom!

  13. Hello...new to your blog, but love your photos. You have such a talent. The butterflies have just returned to our little corner of the world here, and I hope to capture a few photos even half as good as yours. Thanks for a few moments of relaxation at the end of a crazy, busy day.

  16. Sooo gorgeous!!! The butterfly and the photos. Do you have posted somewhere the kind of camera and lense you use? Right now I only know how to use a point and click (and it's a fine point and click), but you inspire me to learn more!!
