Saturday's Critters #141
Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.
I am sharing one of my Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and various species of Butterflies.

I hope you enjoyed my hummer and the pretty butterflies. I was thrilled to see at least one Monarch in my yard this season. As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

Thanks for hosting!
Oh dear, so beautiful!!!ReplyDelete
All your butterfly images are stunning Eileen. I hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots you got!ReplyDelete
Nature at its best. Nice pictures.ReplyDelete
Good Morning, Eileen.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you're having butterflies. They are sure in short supply anymore, aren't they? I used to have hundreds at a time on all my flowers, now there is just the occasional one. It's so sad.
Hope you have a good weekend
Hello Eileen!:) Lovely captures of the Hummers and gorgeous butterflies images. How great to see three different species in the same shot, and I'm glad you got to see the Monarch, perhaps the most beautiful of them all.:)ReplyDelete
I haven't seen many hummingbirds this year. Your photos are so sweet. Looks like the butterflies are enjoying the butterfly bush. I hope you enjoy the weekend, Eileen. Thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
Eileen, is it OK if I share two of the posts I made this week?ReplyDelete
Loving your post today Eileen.ReplyDelete
The butterflies are simply beautiful and the hummingbirds gorgeous!
Thank you for sharing and hosting Saturday's Critters today.
Have a truly wonderful Weekend :)
Hello Eileen! What a delightful mosaic in hearts! Your photos of the butterflies are just stunning! The sunlight streaming through is just lovely!ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!
Shoe de fotos, como sempre por aqui! Lindo fim de semana! beijos, chicaReplyDelete
Butterflies, flowers and bright blue skies - beautiful!ReplyDelete
My word, I have struggled to see any butterflies this year (it was even commented upon in our news the other day) so you really scored! Love the collage cutout... have a great weekend, Eileen!~ YAM xx
I especially like the two Frits on the flower, so nicely staged and tack-sharp. I am seeing relatively few butterflies and fear that intensive spraying spurred on by the Zika panic may be the cause. There are certainly fewer mosquitoes despite our abnormally excessive rainfall. I hear thunder as I write!ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos of the birds and butterflies! The Monarch and The Swallowtail are so beautiful! I love them all :)
Happy Saturday, and enjoy your weekend!
What wonderful photos! I love how you captured four butterflies in one shot! -Marci @ Stone Cottage AdventuresReplyDelete

Love the butterflies. They have been so busy flitting about that my Humans hasn't been able to get a decent shot this year.
Y'all come on by
Hawk aka BrownDog
Am I glad I wished you a happy weekend. It returned these great picturesReplyDelete
Loved seeing the three butterfly varieties in one photo.ReplyDelete
What a gem!
Buddy LOVES his hummers and is continually taking photos of them. They have battles on the front porch for their sugar water there are so many. Me, I go for the butterflies. As a child I was told that a butterfly is the soul of a loved one who has come back to check on me and say Hello. genieReplyDelete
Magnificent butterfly photos!ReplyDelete
So beautiful pics. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Greetings. Happy Weekend.
That second picture sums up my relationship with hummers!ReplyDelete
Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Hard to pick a favorite between the hummingbird or butterflies. Both are favorites! I've seen a few more Monarch's than in years past, so the effort to save them by providing more milkweed for them to eat and lay eggs on must be working.ReplyDelete
Wow! Eileen, you got some great shots of the hummingbird and the butterflies. Love that first shot of the hummer ... he looks huge! I've linked up my moose post, but I know you already visited it (thank you!). Enjoy the rest of the weekend :)ReplyDelete
Great images, all so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Marvelous flying critters and the flowers too.ReplyDelete
I love flutterbys
Beautiful sommerflies !!ReplyDelete
Have a nice sunday.
so beautiful to see this special hummingbirds. The butterflies, you´re catched, are amazing !
Best regards, Synnöve
I'm back Eileen...knocking on your door----ReplyDelete
Thank you, kindly, for stopping by I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend to add this post to the linking tool. It's always appreciated by us birders and nature lovers!!
Your pictures are fantastic. Seems our butterflies were less this year. People don't think much about the poison they use and how it affects nature. Hopefully it will stay well balanced.ReplyDelete
Have a blessed week.
A beautiful day with so many beautiful critters.ReplyDelete
Wow! Butterflies are awesome. How could you capture them so well?ReplyDelete
Great shots of all the critters, Eileen, but I really liked the butterflies. Those monarchs are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting.
Good morning Eileen. I have seen a hummingbird sitting still only once. They are such busy little birds. My first monarch has finally shown up. I have planted lots of milkweed and other flowers for them. They are such spectacular butterflies. Have a great day Eileen. ChristaReplyDelete
Beautiful butterfly shots..I'm jealous...The birds must get any that we have around here..ReplyDelete
Fabulous photos of the butterflies - I'd love to have more in our yard - I'm working on that with plantings.ReplyDelete
A wonderful variety of butterflies for you, that's for sure, Eileen!...:)JPReplyDelete
lovely to see your butterflies - not many over here this year. And of course we never get hummers (though we do get humming bird hawkmoths somethimes!)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos Eileen. Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, Eileen! I especially love your Great Spangled Fritillary photo. Thanks again for hosting!ReplyDelete
