Yes its that time of year, back yard is full of crickets, grasshoppers, and lots of Butterflies. Couldn't help but post this, not the usual post of a beautiful Butterfly but couldn't help but laugh when I was tossing all the other misses while tring to capture photos of these quick movers. It seemed to be looking at me saying bug off lady! I'm busy! :o)
Cropped the heck out of the photo to just get the butterfly and some of the plants she/he was resting on and added a frame.

Hello Donna,
This is a pleasant creation!
Dynamic capture, well framed and presented in this fine composition...

Hi Donna,
Shame on me that I missed this photo. The composition of this photo is really good. showing the b'fly from a kinda sneaky position. I love the colors and the shallow DOF. Great focus giving the b'fly good sharpness but also some of the flowers. Considering the time of day, excellent control on the lighting.

Hi Donna,
Exellent macro,Detail, colours and compo are wonderful.TFS
