The  butterflies have drifted through, a few at a time. I have not been able to spend much time getting pics of them.

I apologize that the pics are not sharp.  (prime lens needed). I used a tripod for most of these. Of course, after cropping, the pixels went from 18 to about 12 or probably less thus reducing the sharpness.

Top 3 pics are of the queen butterfly.

  1. Great pictures. I have never seen that type of flower before. It’s so delicate.

    • Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. The Frostweed is a great native flower that really attracts butterflies and honey bees. I let it grow just about anywhere it comes up. Some of it I mow or chop down but I leave a lot of it to grow as it chooses.

I enjoy reading and replying to comments
