A Visitor To Musashi's Garden




Camera Critters

I'm joining Camera Critters today to share a visitor to Musashi's Garden.

The Giant Swallowtail Butterfly


Giant Swallowtail Butterfly


A really big dude!
He stayed in the garden for quite awhile giving me a chance to grab the camera, run out the door, 
and without scaring him away, take a few shots.

A real treat.

Wishing YOU well and a joy filled weekend!

Love the close up of the face...the eyes and the angle of that one best of all. But, they're, each one...perfect.

This butterfly was very patient for you -- staying still long enough for you to capture some wonderful images. Love them all!

Amazing shots Snap, wow, you really captured the face. xox

Barb said...

Especially like that second shot with th flower. Can never get a decent butterfly shot because of all the flitting! Maybe they're calmer in the heat?
