Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    So very pretty, Dot! I have not seen these around here.

  • Thank you Judy. I don’t think I’ve seen them around Dunnellon either, just at the butterfly museum.

    Wow!! Amazing! Would love to see one of these!

  • Thanks very much, Gena. I’ve seen them only at the butterfly museum. They’re a pretty large butterfly, blue on the top of the wings only.

    Wonderful capture of this beauty Dot. I have seen them here, but never have the camera at the right time.

  • Thanks Gabrielle. It was a little blurry, but it came out okay with a little editing. I was determined to use it! LOL

    Great capture. Isn’t the museum awesome?

  • Thank you, Margaret. Yes it is. Next time I’m up there I want to go through the art museum that is next door. Harn, I think the name of it is.
