A few from my garden

bob_71(z7 MD)July 5, 2012

I have a volunteer garden this year. Everything came up from seeds from last year's garden except the Buddleia's. The butterflies don't seem to mind.

Thanks for taking a look.


American Lady

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Orange Sulphur

All Beautiful! It's hard to get a good picture like that of a sulphur. They don't hold still very long.

Bob, incredible nature photos as always!

Christie, I agree with your point on the hyper winged sulphurs.

However, last summer late I came across one nectaring on the zinnias and it let me practically get right over it with my camera...it must have been hungry!

I also got this one at the beginning of May, Tony

Your photos are fantastic, Bob, as usual. The hardest images for me to get are actually of the Cabbage Whites. I get a big white blur that doesn't even look like a butterfly, lol!

The detail in your images is just astounding.
