Wings of Spring

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine
~ Jeffrey Glassberg

These lovely creatures really do bring sunshine into my life. In fact - this little guy was taken in a bit of shady area - but the sun came out and started shining on the very top of it's wings. Not sure you can see that in this shot - but it was quite a special moment!
I believe this is a Spring Azure.

He's gorgeous and matches the branch. Good shot. I've only seen one butterfly as well but he sort of went swooshing by me in this windy weather we have been having. Guess I'll have to wait for my butterfly shot this year.

Kerri,
Azures are very tricky. My thought on this is it is a 'early' Summer Azure. Spring Azures are not as crisp as this, they look slightly dingy or smudged.

Exquisite close-up, Kerri! Viewing this photo is a beautiful start to my morning. Can't wait to see my first 2011 butterfly ... it's been rather chilly here in Chicago.

I love how his color blends with the branch, like he's camouflaged. That is stunning. Just beautiful!

I think it's almost impossible to be mad in the presence of butterflies. :)

Good one! I saw a blue one last week, but the wind was obnoxious, so I couldn't get a clear shot. This is great!
