flutterby

butterfly - aren't butterflies lovely? It would be lovelier if they would just stay still for one second so I can get a really good photo of them. Well, how ever fluttery they are, I still love how awesome they are.

long ago, butterflies were called flutterby. Most fitting for this little butterfly that just won't stay still! I had to shoot several times before I finally got the one that I wanted. I also love how the greens are so soothing to the eyes, this picture makes me feel relaxed every time I look at it. Please post your comments. Thanks.

Yes, butterflies do not stay still for long. But, if you are patient, follow them. You will get a series of good shots. I take pictures of butterflies too. Of course, it is rather tiring to try to get a good shot of one, not to say many. There are times when there are many butterflies around you, while there are times, you won't find any. It is really amazing that butterflies know how to find some suitable green for their landing. We feel relaxed at the same time!

it is tiring and btw, he was alone at the time so I really did not have any choice but to run after him!

I love to look at butterflies due to their colorful wings. They look so fragile that I am afraid to touch them in case I might break them. by the way, where is the butterfly picture that you mentioned about?
