Painted Lady Butterfly

I spent all summer trying to capture a butterfly to no avail. I am getting into the habit of bringing my camera whenever I step out of the house as I always seem to find something to take a picture of on the way back home from dropping the girls off from school.

Not only was I able to take these gorgeous photographs, I have 3 minutes of video footage of this little butterfly trying to tenaciously cling to those flowers while the wind was blowing. It is pure awesomeness!

    Thanks Roberta.

    I had been so surprised I got some good shots. The butterflies had been so elusive.
