Day 63 – Butterfly

7 Jun

Since I am doing a free for all week with no theme I find myself shooting nature…now isn’t that a theme? If I ever cooperated with myself I don’t know what I would do.

Butterflies happen to be one of the most beautiful little creatures on earth and I can even forgive the fact that they are insects because when I look at them all I see is a work of art. If you ever have any doubts about the beauty of this world just load up Google images and type in butterfly, they are simply amazing. We had a gorgeous day here in Kentuckiana so I just had to step out back to look for some inspiration and this is what I captured.

    It’s beautiful. How lucky to catch it on those wonderful pink flowers.

    Wow I can see the eyes on it! I think butterflys are pretty but only at a distance. Bugs freak me out. Not Buggs, but bugs. Buggs is cool.

      They are beautiful. No one can be more scared of bugs than me so you can’t possibly be afraid of a butterfly!!!!

    I love it! The colors are beautiful and the bokeh effect in the background. I still smiled at you taking pictures of any sort of bug at all!! 🙂

    Butterflies are one of my favorite things in the world. They relax me. And yes I forgive them for being bugs.

    I just applaude the patience for not only finding a butterfly to shoot in the first place, but then framing it so lovely in such a perfect environment. Not only is the butterfly beautiful, but so are it’s surroundings.

    Soooo if spiders had big beautiful, colorful wings, would that make them prettier and more approachable for you Mindy? LMAO!

      That butterfly was cropped LOL!! I had a lot more of the flowers in the shot in the original photo 🙂 and NO if spiders had wings I would seriously freak out!
