My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
