Very nice collection of Butterflies. I still have a hard time taking a picture of one. I see them everyday flying around my yard - but they just don't stay still long enough.

Jan said...

These are great. How did you get all of the little suckers to hold still long enought. I guess I need lessons.

Carletta said...

All of these and I can't capture one! Guess I'll have to stare at these - they are beautiful!

Ash said...

This is so lovely!

WillThink4Wine said...

Beauties, all. I've never successfully taken a photo of a butterfly. They won't stop moving long enough for my lens to focus.

Very nice series of butterflies! I like how you put them all together!

Beautiful butterflies. I bet it took a lot of patience capturing all of these..

Kerri said...

WOW Dot! These are fabulous! I LOVE butterflies!!

Dot: You certainly have a beautiful collection of butterflies. I have been doing better with dragonflies.

I didn't know Butterflies went to College. Oh, my bad, Collage. Is that French? Pappy

These are just lovely Dot! I can never get them to stay still long enough to get a photo!

Im with Carletta, I can't even get one lousy shot of a butterfly. Thanks for sharing your wealth. They are beautiful.

Daryl said...

I love this .. its so pretty you should print/frame it...

And I did the collage trick of combining two photos into one ... it came out really good ... thanks for the idea!

What a beautiful collection. I see no solid YELLOW butterflies though. ;)

Pretty little thangs.

I do believe I just saw all those butterflies on my Lantana bush.
Beautiful picture. I just love butterflies.

Today IS a butterfly day. Wonderfully well-focused, and I don't suppose you ran down the road chasing any of them? [wistful sigh]

They are so-o-o pretty! I wish I could get a good one of a yellow swallowtail. They see me and...whoops! They vanish.

Kelli said...

Oh my gosh! That is the prettiest collage, Dot! Such wonderful butterflies!

Wow, they are all so pretty.

Nice photos Dot, Also the Ruby Tuesday post. In my neighborhood, I noticed that the leaves are ever so slightly beginning to turn. Fall isn't far away; I'm hoping that the colors this year will be beautiful.

April said...

What a wonderful collage! It would look so nice framed and adorning a wall.

You are so fortunate to capture these, they're beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Dick said...

Oh, so many beautiful butterflies. Great shots.

Kutuharju said...

Gosh, they are so beautiful!
In Finland we have had such a cool summer (but on the other hand, we had a warm winter, too), that there were very few butterflies to be seen. I only saw a couple during our two weeks' holiday in the cottage. But now I know where to come and admire them if I miss them... here!

Mike said...

Just beautiful. Butterflies are very hard to see here in the UK.

Rambling Round said...

Beautiful collage. I'm seeing some of these in my zinnia bed.

Rose said...

I wish I could be lucky enough to get half of these...they are beautiful creatures.

Paulie said...

You are fortunate to find so many different ones. The photo I posted today of the Tiger Swallowtail is the first butterfly I have seen all summer! I never see anything but the Tiger Swallowtails here either. Nice collage!

Hi Dot, your collage is great! Just beautiful!

I did a collage yesterday but I would like to know how you did yours. Did you used Paint or another program?

sonia a.m. said...

Hi Dot,
Thank you, I went to the blog you told me and the collage is great too.

If you have the time, come to see the current post of Leaves of Grass. I was inspired by you, by the current team of Sky Watch Friday and by Brazilian TertĂșlia Virtual and create a Collective Blogging about Ecology, named Ecological Day. I guess you will like it.
See you soon.
