      Buffalo..where the White River runs into the Buffalo River.

      What a gorgeous picture! Either you are really talented, or you have a great camera, or both. Knowing you, my money is on both.

      Tamara, I have just a regular digital camera that I got at a going out of business sale, nothing fancy, a Vivitar of some sort. It’s small and fits in my purse and that’s why I bought it. I do know how to compose a picture and that’s what I have going for me.

      Jean, they are just regular sized butterflies, I just put the camera on the ground at their eye level and took the shot and they were kind enough to not move.

      The riverbanks were thick with wildflowers and butterflies. It was a peaceful sliver of Eden.

      My goodness that’s a great shot. If you look at it a long time you might think those butterflies are of the gigantic variety!

      I can’t believe they didn’t fly away before you captured the shot. God’s world is just so incredibly tantilizing and breath-taking.

      I’ve become way to jaded, I think. My first impression was that it lookeed photoshopped. But of course it isn’t, which makes it even more amazing. Great shot!

      Neat photo! My son’s favorite book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar (today at least). I’ll assume you probably know the book by heart. His favorite part….”and he wasn’t a little caterpillar anymore….He was a Biiiiiig, FAT, caterpillar!! Makes him crack up every time. He could care less when he turns into the BEAUTIFUL butterfly. But I like the ending, personally.

    31. Ortizzle says:

      I get how you did it, setting the camera down right in front of them… I just wonder how you got the same clarity in the background with that super-narrow depth of field. (Don’t pay any attention to me, I learned with a manual SLR and still don’t know beans.)

      IT’S NICE, is what I was trying to say, LOL.

      This is such a pretty photo that I was inspired to take my own camera on the road with me yesterday afternoon. I do a lot of off road work, back country, and there are plenty of wild flowers and butterflies. I thought I would just snap me up some beautiful butterfly pics. Hah, I thought wrong! You have some wonderful timing or luck or awareness. Keep up the beautiful work.

      beautiful! my granddaughter and I watch out for butterflies every day. I have a nice flower garden that I specifically chose plants that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. We’ve seen some really pretty ones this summer.
