Very beautiful photos of the butterflies sampling all the goodies nature had prepared for them.
The butterflies are gorgeous. I'm sure you have a greater variety of colouful butterflies than we have in NZ.
The daintiest of ballerinas...
Beautiful photographs. The butterflies look almost as if they have been pinned into position - like some Victorian bell-glass encased display
nice ballet reference...my wife being a ballerina for years...i often think of butterflies as little dancers...

Ahhhh...the Buddleia does it every year!Elora
September and butterflies go together beautifully.I just glanced over your proposed work load inthe sidebar. Golly!
A brief post today -- I'm in the tomatoes again!Thanks for the link, Miss Yves!Yep, Friko, it's a little daunting. Just now while I'm waiting for the canner to do its 45 minutes, I'm answering questions for two different on-line interviews that will be posted in a few weeks. Then I've got some guest blog posts for October to do -- one reason I haven't posted anything on Fridge Soup in a while.
Lovely post.BTW: I have started doing some writing. Would you mind reading it and giving me some advice? :)
We have a tremendous amount of butterflies here in Little River. I've never seen so many. They are beautiful and bright yellow. We never tire of watching them. Mother Nature gave us a colorful world.
Greedy to get the last drops of summer - that's me too!
Dear Vicki: The fitful dancers flitting from end of summmer's sweet nectar's dance. Do you know if they are Monarchs? They are yellow; I thought Monarch butterflies are orange; they are beauties. Lovely pics! Vicki your schedule does sound pleasantly busy; "On the road again!" Wonders about those "Sisters in Crime". teehee!
Lovely photographs. Are these Buddleia that are attracting the butterflies?
Go stand in the corner, NCmountainwoman ;-)Butterflies are an amazing gift, Bouncin' Barb!Now that the horrible heat of July and much of August has abated, I'm loving this end-of-summer time too, Jennyfreckles!These are Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, Chicoreal. We didn't have many Monarchs this year.Sisters; in Crime is an organization for people interested in promoting women crime writers. There are quite a few men who are members too and there is an adjunct organization called the Guppies (for great unpublished). It's a good organization with lots of helpful info online for anyone interested in writing mysteries.Yes, Martin, it's Buddleia -- more commonly called Butterfly Bush around here.
It is beautiful here too!
We've never had so many butterflies as we have this year. Now they are dying by the truckload. I hated to see them disappear so I gathered up all I could, laid them on my scanner and copied them into my photo album.
I hope you have some strong pasta shapes around, zite and the like, to keep you afloat! ;-)
Ooopsie, wrong post -love the butterflies too,just would never think of pairing them with zite pasta!
