Pink Feast

I seem to be on a pink streak - 2 in a row! A clouded sulphur butterfly (male) finds happiness on a pink thistle flower.

Still working hard to catch up on my commenting. Hang in there! Hope to be in your BP corner soon!

Val, your macro work is always perfection. I finally saw a butterfly this year. This is two years in a row that they just seem to scip our area. We have plenty of flowers for them. So do me a favor and send down a few of those beauties a little south to our gardens. #10249379

Pink is good. Fabulous macro and well timed Val. My computer is broken and in repair and I feel like I have a broken wing for BP uploads and comments. Yuck. #10269243
