Mickie,How do you get so close without them flitting off into another nectar of beauty?
I love them.
Butterflys add such beauty to our gardens.
Blessings

How lovely your butterfly photographs are! They love the Lantana, don't they? I collect all things butterfly - my hubby gave me a butterfly jacket earlier this week; here's the post: http://yellanmildred.blogspot.com/2011/07/white-wednesday.html

Hope you have a nice afternoon.

Beautiful, so beautiful.

When I was sitting in the back yard today....a little white butterfly just kept fluttering around me.... I loved it, but didn't have my camera with me.

Hi, Mickie.
It's nice to know you.
I was attracted to your photos and words.
I like especially "Garden treasure to behold" It's nice phrase.
Have a nice day!

Beautiful photos. What species is the first one? I've never seen that butterfly before, and it's beautiful.

Mickie, exquisite butterfly photographs! Gorgeous wing patterns and colors. You captured these lovely creatures beautifully! Thank you for bringing a little bit of sunshine into this cloudy, rainy day.

Great butterfly shots, and a very nice variety. I've been chasing a huge monarch around for the past week, but the second he sees me sneaking up with my camera, he takes off.

Beautiful! Your photos are really amazing Mickie -- plus it is really hard to shoot butterflies -- they flit! Thanks for sharing -- just beautiful.
