Spring Flowers and a Butterfly



I think a few of the people visiting the old Florida Capitol thought it was amusing to watch me follow this butterfly around on the front lawn trying to get a couple of good pictures. Once I'm determined to get a blog picture though, I don't pay much attention to what anyone else thinks!

Great job, Lois. I was chasing a butterfly not too long ago, but never caught it with my camera of any other way. I think it flew off to Tallahassee!

I hear you Lois :) I have a feeling we bloggers are all the same! Worth it to get shots like this.

Though I'm not quite ready for spring yet, I have to admit this is wonderfully cheery!

You are a woman after my own heart -- there are people here in our park who can't believe I take pictures of sky and bugs etc etc.... some people just don't appreciate a determined photographer ;>)

Your persistence definitely paid off here -- that is a beautiful butterfly, just perfect against the yellow pansies. And also, I'm a bit envious of the pansies themselves -- we don't seem to have any of them growing (in the g round) around here -- I have seen a few pots of them in some places, but I am guessing it might be too hot here for them, like it is for most spring flowers.

Great photos of the butterfly and pretty flowers. I most definitely understand your determination and not bothering what anyone thinks when determined to get a certain photo :) ThanK you so much for sharing with Today's Flowers, and I wish you a very happy Thursday.
