  4. How i wish if you are just near so you can capture the many butterfly species that visit my garden. I cant seem to pin them down nicely to get their photos. Normally, the best colored ones just arrive when it's already about midday that they flutter so quickly already.

  5. I've never witnessed a monarch emerge from its cocoon - what a joy, a marvel! Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. I am enjoying yours as well, and shall away next to your other to peruse. Be well!

  6. Heisann! What a shot....
    In Norway we call this butterfly Admiral.
    Thanks a lot for your comment on my blog ...
    have a nice week ;:OD)

  7. Wow what an amazing shot! I love Butterflies, very beautiful!

  8. Hello Carol, that 1st photo is really something! I envy you people who spot this moment in nature, i lately try to walk early when in the province to see some unusual scenes, but somehow metamorphosis still eludes me. I always see the butterflies when they are already fluttering by, or drying their wings and i had a difficult time looking for pupa adult enough for emergence! hahaha.
