Ask And You Shall Receive


Someone posted a message on my Hood Photography Facebook Page (which you should take a moment and go like, BTW!) saying that they loved my bees on flowers photos, and wanted to request a butterfly on flowers photo if I could. Well, ask and you shall receive. I went on a walk with some family this weekend and the area we were at was covered in these blooming thistles, and the butterflies were all over them. I have one more that I took that I love that I will post later in the week also!

Hahaha, what a nice title! You should look at my 3rd to the last post as i had lots of butterflies. My area has lots of butterflies, unfortunately my lenses are not as fast to freeze some of those swallowtails that don't stop fluttering their forewings even when sipping nectar.

A sharp and clear shot!

I have to agree with Kalantikan...
Butterflies are faster than my finger pushing the button on my camera.
Thank you for your picture.

Great image. Bees make excellent subjects! And this would suit Mandarin Orange Monday very well :)
