  44. Hi Eileen!

    Det är svårt att fotografera fjärilar, de sitter sällan stilla framför fotografen. Du har tagit jättefina bilder på vackra fjärilar!

  45. Your butterfly images are exceptionally beautiful. I wonder how could you manage to have the threesome together!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh, those butterflies are just gorgeous! The Great Spangled Fritillary is especially appealing to me. Probably because I don't see that many of them.
