3/25/11, macro. Sheesh! I get called a smarty-pants gloating FLOWER shooter by you snowed-in cabin-fevered Northerners for showing all the Spring flowers around here! Just to show it isn't true, here is a new BUTTERFLY that I chased today in the yard! See- I can gloat about ANYTHING- not just flowers! LOL!

    What a superb macro close up Carol, our butterflies are staring to get a bit scarce with the onset on the cooler weather!
I have a feeling we could see this one again!

LOL! It's a bit painful, I admit, but when you've captured either or both this beautifully, you're entitled to gloat! Hard to believe they're flying around already down your way, but I'll take that as a sign we may see an earlier than usual spring.

Hard to believe you are chasing butterflies already. LOL. We are in for a cold weekend with a chance of snow Sunday. We had a really heavy frost last night. Hope we see no damage to what was blooming. Superbly done, Carol. Amazing details.

This is a gloater for a score of reasons, Carol. Perfectly exquisite, and the new butterfly is still in unmolested condition.
