  1. Very nice captures, Karin! I especially liked the last shot. It was almost like they had decided to pose for you. -- Bom

  2. This is a beautiful butterfly. I only ever saw one at the Conservancy. I seem to say that a lot, lol. You get some real beauties in your garden. We really do not get a huge variety up here and many of the pretty ones are so few. My garden has so many Sulphurs, maybe 30 or so flying around all the time, but they are not all that interesting.

  6. Inspiring. Great shots. Made me go out and create a W Wed post! Spectacular shots. I couldn't get my lone hairstreak to hold still. Are those sedum blooms?

  9. It might be (or have been) Wordless Wednesday, Karin, but the word that comes to mind is exquisite ! Great captures and colour !

    Loved your black widow series (are they found in Florida too ?) and other butterfly shots !

  10. I see those in my garden all the time and never knew what they were called!! Hooray for not having to call it "that little butterfly" anymore. :o) Is Tropical Storm Lee bringing you any rain?

    Here's a plant I think might do well in your garden, esp. after the drought this summer:

  11. Beautiful photos! Looks like they are posing on fluffy pink clouds. The red streak is quite eye catching.
