    Lovely! I love the sulphur particularly. My favorite. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take photos of our sulphurs this year.

  2. Thanks Maki and Lisa. I’m sure these will be my last butterfly photos of the year. The wings on most of the butterflies that I’m seeing now are quite worn and tattered. They’re still lovely though!

  3. Beautiful! I’ve never seen a Mexican Bluewing (that I know of), so I totally learned something new today!

  4. These are stunning images! The dappled light on and through the butterfly wings really enhances their beauty. So many gorgeous colors and wing patterns. Terrific series!

    Totally beautiful lighting & color..Nature paints such lovely pictures for those who have the talent to frame them..as you do!

  6. the lighting is especially nice on that buff-colored one on the lantana

  7. Thanks Julie, Cindy and Teresita. I do love the butterflies. Sad that these are probably my last photos of them for the year.
