Yes, we are... :) :)

From my archives of last Spring...a red admiral butterfly strolls along a branch of Mexican plum blooms found at our local Home Depot parking lot. You just never know - always pays to have your camera handy!

A delicate beauty here, Val, and I love your treatment and textures. Beautifully composed and presented. I wish I was one of those that had their cameras with them at all times...I have tried but it never sticks for very long!

My camera lives in my jeep. Lovely capture and we have had very few butterflies in Del Rio likely due to the drought.

Val! Hi! I have surface from the ice and snow in the woods to come and visit you!

This one has my senses going crazy. The BG looks like snow to me and yet we see blooms and a beautiful butterfly landing for nectar and a rest.

This reminds me of Japanese art. So pure and delicate!


P.S. I hope you are keeping warm dear one? They say our mild weather is gone and snow is on the way. Boo HOOOOOO!
