    Thanks Karen. They are just as pretty as the flowers they visit.

    Thanks Mom. I’m glad you liked my butterfly pictures.

    You don’t get butterflies in ND Chris? That’s a shame. They are a beautiful part of nature. I’m glad you enjoyed the pics.

    Thanks Jean, I’m glad you enjoyed my butterfly pics. They are pretty aren’t they? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the butterfly pictures. One of my little kids called them flutterbys. We saw lots of them at the forest preserve the other day especially monarchs.

    I love butterflies! They are so graceful and gentle, and I love how they flit from flower to flower. Beautiful photos!
