Camera Critters and Macro Flower Saturday

I think I must have a "gaZillion" of these butterflies in my yard this year. They are everywhere and they are not the least bit camera shy .

They seem to love the Mexican Sunflowers the best :) 

Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them and you can the interesting eyes these babies have.

Macro Flowers Saturday badge 1


  1. They are beautiful. I don't think I've spent much time in my yard this summer. Texas has this punishing heat, we've pretty much stayed indoors until dark.

  2. I love shots with butterflies and these are gorgeous.
    How lucky you are to have them so close and you can take photos of them any time.
    I don't see many of them here.

  3. I love Mexican Sunflowers. I must remember to get some of those next summer. Lovely photos!

  4. The sunflowers are beautiful alone, but the addition of the butterfly makes them fantastic!

  5. Both the flowers & the butterfly are gorgeous. How lucky you are.

  6. Great photos of both the butterflies and the flowers, Carol!

  7. Beautiful shots! I really need to get a macro lens for my camera. Unfortunately, the only butterflies we get in our yard are the naughty white ones.
