Three Butterflies and A Dragonfly


In the Florida insect world, I succeeded with just these three butterflies and a dragonfly while down there this past winter.

Kudos to you insect photographers, these are not easy subjects!

  1. Thanks for sharing and for labeling these different insects. They are lovely! I have never seen a white peacock. It is beautiful. We have blue dashers in our yard in the summer and they are quite colorful. I love the detail in all of your pictures.

  2. Love the butterflies and dragonflies. That dragonfly looks like he’s wearing a helmet. LOL!

    Photographing them and bees are a chore. Bees and butterflies will let you get close if you are slow. Dragonflies? Nope. All of my shots of them are distance shots.

    • Thank you, Suzanne! They aren’t easy, I’m usually not very lucky at insects either, I hate to admit how many I have to trash shots because they weren’t in focus, lol.

  3. It’s always nice to see butterflies, the same as birds. I call them the flying flowers! Great shots, Donna. 🙂

    • Thank you, Eliza!
      No, we did not make it back home. We own an RV lot in a remote area in northwest SC, and our kids felt it best for us to go to it from FL and wait out the pandemic, since the mid-Atlantic was becoming a hot spot. I haven’t been able to find out if B&B returned yet. I hope they did, can you imagine the arguments on who’s building a decent nest this year? 😉

    • Thank you, Gunta! They are to me too, took a lot of shots to get just these few, lol.
      Hey, did you see the VW bug photo in my ‘Everglades City’ post, I always thought of you when I passed it in my birding adventures. 😉
