I'm so blessed to be surrounded by such color! Before I got my first digital camera I overlooked so much. The more I get into this hobby, the more I see...the more I want to see...the more I want to share with others.

Again you are viewing a Gulf Fritillary and a Turk's Cap.

From what I've heard, the presence of a Gulf Fritillary is a sure sign of a passionflower nearby. I can tell there are none close to my place. I'm not sure if that's a wive's tale or if this little one got that severely lost. :)

Dear Angie
Apart from this beautiful image, I want to thank you for the words in your first paragraph from your notes, and I quote:

“I'm so blessed to be surrounded by such color! Before I got my first digital camera I overlooked so much. The more I get into this hobby, the more I see...the more I want to see...the more I want to share with others”

The wording really touched my heart, as it presented a part of your personality, and that is why Trek Nature and its members are so special to me. It is the part where people do not mind to share their talents and experiences and not minding doing it. You are much appreciated!
Warmest regards

Beautiful! Great colorful presentation! Kudos! Cheers, Klaus

Hello Angelina,
Yes, it is certainly true, the more you look, the more you see! This is another beautiful capture of the Gulf Fritillary and the Turk's Cap, both very beautiful. Very well composed shot.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Hi Angelina,
I see you changed your profile photo..Hey, the tractor looks great on you ;}
Very nice color and exposure, great detail within your somewhat limited DOF. The "turks cap" is a great idea for the next backyard planting in the spring, thanx!

Hi Angelina.
Thanks you interest and nice comments.
Wonderful impressive subject. Pictured scene and POV are excellent. I am impressed with vibrant colours of the shot, excellent posture of the butterfly, superb details of the insect and flowers and nice blurred BG. My compliments and best regards.
