Someone has an amazing macro lens...those are gorgeous photos!!!
this is making me smile on a sick day... quite an accomplishment...
I had no idea...that butterflies had tongues...don't ask me how I thought they ate...but seeing these up close and personal...I'm just blown away! Great shots!
I need a macro.
beautiful.my daughter must have used your butterfly photo for reference. : )http://www.flickr.com/photos/autumnsun/6025874710/
I don't know which feeling is stronger... my lens envy or photographic awe at those pictures. Nice!!
Wowza! Spectacular images. I particularly love the last one because the proboscis is inserted so perfectly in the center of that bloom!
Wow! I am impressed and what patience you had to wait for the perfect shot!
You know me and nature, loving these. Great captures.
Oh I love the polka dots on it's body... amazing detail!

Up close and personal! Gorgeous shots Beth.
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.
Butterflies are truly fascinating, I have not seen them here in ages :-/
That you share the beauty of your world is so much appreciated, Beth. These photos are incredible!
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!!xx oo
oh my god. WOW.
these are amazing!! how did I miss this?
Somebody commented on my butterfly post and sent me over here saying that you had some nice butterfly tongue images too... they were right!Beautiful!
I want a new camera! Just gorgeous. xo Jenny
