Butterflies at the Cascades


Spring Butterfly at the Cascades
(Cabbage White perhaps?)

If you've ever been on a "butterfly hunt" as I call it.....you knowthat once you get up to these little guys....they usually fly away... and leave you without a shot. Well....this one hung around a little while.


One of my favorites of Spring - Mourning Cloak Butterfly

Yes, butterflies...all flying bugs for that matter, are tough subjects! All the more rewarding when you get one...and you did! Thanks for the link re: moths vs butterflies. I've bookmarked it. I once saw what I thought was a hummer that turned out to be a moth...it looked SO much like one. The name of it escapes me at the moment.

Thanks so much for the award, it is always good to know when our work is truly appreciated.

I can't say I have seen any butterflies yet but I did see coltsfoot blooming for a first this weekend. Too bad it was in a place here I didn't have room to pull off the road.

These butterflies must have wintered over, they look a little ragged from the wear.

Annie said...

Kerri, you charm me with your kindness. I'm only so and so when it comes to photography but I do have fun with it. You're much much better.

Stacey Huston said...
