Butterfly at Homosassa Butterfly in Homosassa, Florida. I thought it was a Monarch, but now I think it’s a Queen Butterfly.

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.

    Amazing capture Dot, they are such beautiful butterflies.

  • Thanks so much Andrea. Wish I could have gotten a bit better sharpness, as you do with your silvereyes.
