As I went to put some mail in the mailbox the other day, I noticed this butterfly on one of the trees down there and since I had the camera with me, I was able to get some photos. This reminded me of some butterfly photos I took at the beach in North Carolina a couple of years ago. Both times the butterfly stuck around for a while, although both times they kept changing position and both times it was hard to get just the right shot with the digital camera.

Here are my results.
These are from North Carolina in September 2006.

And these are from Pennsylvania in June 2008.

Loved the photos! You remind me of myself. I love taking pictures (just waiting to get a digital SLR, hopefully soon :-) of nature and its little treasures, like these beautiful butterflies! Thanks for sharing them.

Alyson - Oh I want a digital SLR so badly. Hopefully soon for me too! I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.

My hubby promises me an SLR before our vacation in Vermont in August. So I'm hoping, but you just never know. I never count my chickens before they're hatched. It always seems, with 4 kids, that they are always in need of lots of money for one thing or another and, of course, the parents wants come last. Dang it! :-)

I understand completely :) It's always something that comes first (kids, house, car)! I hope you get it and have a chance to play with it before vacation time !
