A Little Butterfly Magic





 Fewer and fewer Monarchs around each year.
We must start doing more to preserve
all of these beautiful and "important to the world's well being" species.

They are so amazing, Mickie, and you captured them so beautifully.

I so agree! They say less bees as well. What are we doing? Lovely shots... the second is fun with the translucent green wings an eye.

Better make a bug hotel for them then. Beautiful photos you have taken

A resplendent series of butterfly photographs, Mickie! All so very lovely. I have noticed less monarchs over the last few years ... very sad.

These are amazing, Mickie!
Beautifully captured.

You are very fortunate to have such a diversity of subjects! Well captured also.

You captured the loveliest moment of each butterfly, Mickie. I wonder if the decreasing number of Monarchs is a nature’s way or due to human activity? Either way, it’s sad and something must be done.

Thanks for asking about my daughter, She already gave birth to a baby boy in May. He is my third grandchild and first grandson. All your Grands are so beautiful.

I like Butterflys also.

The last one is the only butterflys in my area up North.

Beautiful takes of the rest.

How do you ever get a good shot of the butterfly? They fly away so quickly. These are stunning pictures.
