    Beautiful Ben!

  • Thank you! I used to think of these guys as drab, “just a few brown markings”, but I came to appreciate the delicate artwork.

    Oh, Ben!!!! this is GORGEOUS!!!!!!! I love the whole series!!!!! Beautiful, beautiful!!!! i adore butterflies!!!!!

  • Thank you so much, Lois! I’ve been growing concern that perhaps I was “overloading” my profile with butterfly pictures, but I love them too… Fortunately for me, we have lots of weeds around here that they like! ;-D
    Thank you for the kind words and for favoriting my picture!

    HAHH … I could easily do the same thing!!! In fact, I have several in the computer that I’ve just been thinking about uploading!!!!!! GO for it, Ben!!!! They’re gorgeous .. and you love them!!!!

  • Thanks – I may, but not just yet. I’d like to get a little variety in here before I upload a dozen of the same butterfly in different positions. =D

  • Thank you Victoria! Fortunately for me, these guys are slow eaters, which allows me to (usually) get a shot I’m pleased with. =D
