Wow! Your pictures have such an ethereal look!
The flowers are pretty, too - are those lilies of Peru in the last picture?

Sherry,

To be honest I am not sure what kind of lilies those are...I barely know weeds from water melons...LOL.. I am into photography and I was shooting pictures at the local botanial garden when the butterfly showed up,,I couldn't resist that shot.

The first two photos the butterflies are on a tall weed called Teasel, which grows wild on the edge of the meadow by my house.

The flowers are called Blackberry Lily, although they aren't really a lily. I started some from seed this year, but they won't bloom until next year. I bought another version, 'Mellow Yellow' last year and it is blooming. I'm glad to see the butterflies will like them!

Lovely photos, I like the reflected one.
