Those are awesome! I especially love the monarch on the white daisy!

You must have a beautiful butterfly garden to see all of those. They're beautiful!

Absolutely gorgeous each and very one.

Martha said...

Oh wow, what wonderful shots! I love that blue one that you weren't certain about the name, it was my favorite.
I don't have a clue if the one I posted is a long tailed skipper as you mentioned - I'm going to check it out, you've got me really wondering now!
Thanks for stopping by today :-)

I'd just have to identify them as beautiful, fascinating creatures who had their pictures taken by a great photographer!

Jeanne said...

The only butterfly I ever recognize is a monarch. You sure got to see some awesome ones. We have a butterfly 'conservatory' near us. I'll have to get myself over there and educate myself on them. LOL on your comment to my blog.

These are awesome shots! I was first blown away by how great that monarh looked against those bright daisies. I wasn't expecting there to be even more prettier butterflies. Nice job!!! :-)

Misty Dawn said...

I agree with Fishing Guy - you're just showing off... bwahahahaha and who wouldn't?!?! You've got a fantastic collection of gorgeous butterflies here! I would LOVE to see that blue one in person!
Absolutely gorgeous!

Leedra said...

The 2 top Swallowtails are a Red Spotted Purple (8/25) and then Zebra (8/24).

You and I need to put our collections together.
