Welcome autumn!

this is why my camera is always ready to go...

There isn't much that would motivate me to go outside this afternoon. Apparently, a butterfly will do it. Isn't she lovely?

I wanted to fool around with exposures a little bit on this one. She really doesn't care that I am around. The pink lantana is a volunteer. So glad it decided to grow here. The butterflies love it.

This one may be my favorite, just because I was able to manuever myself to get the background I wanted.

that is amazing...they don't even look real. kudos to you for taking such wonderful pictures. you could probably even sell them!

thanks so much for stopping by the cape on the corner, and for your comment on my eggplant growth! the critters aren't bothering these, but i think some of my bulbs are being dug up. ugh!
