I'm so excited to be sharing my first official butterfly image for this blog.
I was at our local arboretum last Tuesday (8th) when I spied this beauty in the midst of a bunch of daisies.
When I first seen it, it was in this position. I'm standing there talking to it telling it to open its wings.
I decided to move so that I was blocking the sun from hitting it. And when I did he opened his wings. I got so excited that I was sure I was not even holding the camera steady.
I managed to snap about 4 pictures that were pretty decent but they all look like this one. This one is cropped a bit so to see the butterfly closer.
I googled it and believe it to be a Red Admiral. If I am wrong please tell me. I hate to give wrong information.
Then Sunday I went to Susan my florist friend's garden and captured this image of another butterfly. It was much smaller and would NOT open his wings.
