  3. It must be a lot sunnier where you are Roy ... hardly any flutters seen yesterday despite an extensive search. Did find a Ringlet, deep in hiding.

  12. You take such gorgeous shots...each with the perfect background...that I wonder sometimes if you go out and personally pose and direct the butterflies :-) Really....just gorgeous as always! My butterflies are never as cooperative as yours are.

  13. Hi Roy, haven't been on for a while. Love your new header and am pea green with envy over your green hairstreak. I've not been out much but hope to get out more over the next few days! (-:

  14. Landed here quite by chance (somewhat like your butterflies). Wonderful photos ! I need some of the pixie dust you must use to get them to pose - haven't had much success capturing butterflies. yet.
