Here in east Texas, we had a very wet and rainy spring. I think the great rain (breaking a several year drought) brought us many butterflies this year.
My short experience photographing butterflies began with this shot a month or so ago. I was surprised at the large number of views it seemed to get rather quickly.
On the way to Shreveport, Louisiana last week, I found some nice flowers with lots of butterflies hanging around... so here's a few more shots.
I like the way the angle turned out on this one... I thought was kind of special.
I liked the crispness and details of this photo - the colorful butterfly on top of this lovely flower.
Finally, this one caught my attention. Its similar to this photo from a month or so ago.
But in the case of this one, , the deadly struggle was taking place in the shadow of the beautiful pink flower. Look at the spider - beautiful but deadly to the butterfly.
Life and death, in the shadow of beauty.
Just my 2 cents for the day.
