Nature & Wildlife's Beauty and Behavior Through My Lens
What you did capture is beautiful, Donna! ❤️
Thank you, John! 😊
They will flit all the time.
They sure do, teasing us…..catch me if you can!
Thank you, Sheree!
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.
Thank you! Honestly, I had to look up their names, I’m not so good on insects. But I do like knowing what I photographed and try to learn. 😊
All the butterflies are new to me. Very nice, Donna!
Thank you, Belinda! The Queen was new to me. I first thought it was a Monarch, they are very close in similarities. 🙂
These are wonderful, Donna. Well done. 😊
Thank you, Irene! 😊
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, Vic! Close-ups of these guys really are fascinating, and I agree on their ‘helmut’ looks, lol.
That blue one is stunning, but they’re all beautiful. Well done, Donna! I’ve been trying to catch a few flitting around here and it’s not easy!
Thank you, Deborah! No, they aren’t, I tend to trash most of my insect photos, lol.
Great success. These are wonderful. I have little luck photographing butterflies so kudos to you… (Suzanne)
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.
It’s always nice to see butterflies, the same as birds. I call them the flying flowers! Great shots, Donna. 🙂
Thank you, HJ! I love ‘the flying flowers’ tag! 😊
Well done Donna, I always find butterflies difficult to capture. 🙂
Thank you, Ashley! It took a lot of shots to get just these for me, lol. Sometimes I get sidetracked when I see a bird out of the corner of my eye. 😉
What beauties! Lovely post, Donna.
So are you back in CC? Are B&B back, too?
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? 😉
Glad you are staying safe. I hope you wear your masks when you go out! They say that with everyone wearing them, the numbers are flattening much more quickly.
I agree, everyone please wear a mask! Stay safe too, Eliza.
Oh so lovely. Your butterflies and dragonfly photos are stunning, Donna, and I really appreciate the species identification.
Thank you, Jet! I’m not so good on insect ID and did have to look them up. They are a fun challenge and awesome practice. And I enjoy still learning! 😊
Marvelous captures! I find butterflies 🦋 to be nearly impossible!
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. 😉
Yes, butterflies can be tricky little customers! Great pictures though. 😊
Thank you, Mike! You’re probably better than me with these flitters! 😊
Three exceptional beauties! Well done Donna.
Thank you, Brian! Kudos to you on your skills on capturing butterflies, they are not easy for me! 😊
Lovely…lovely…!! And beautiful presentation as well, Donna!!
Thank you, Indira!!
