  7. Beautiful, especially against that background color. I guess that's surrounding greenery.

    1. Yes, it's just the green grass in the background. I warmed it up a bit in my post processing to give it that nice yellow green color. :)

  12. I love butterly bushes! My parents have some lining the back porch at their house and everytime we go over there in the summer there are so many butterflies and it's beautiful! I think it's fun when we walk down the stairs to the backyard and have butterflies flying all around you and even sometimes landing on you!

  13. This is beautiful! I told myself last year that I would get one of these but have not spotted any at the garden center. After seeing your photo, I'm now on a mission to get one!

  19. We have butterfly bushes too -- although not as far along as yours. When I started taking photos of flowers & got some close-ups (other years), I realized that those little individual buds are like an old-fashioned square nail. Amazing what your camera can show you in a close-up that you don't pay attention to w/ the naked eye. Your photos are beautiful Deb!

  33. I've never heard of a butterfly bush. But I'd love something to attract butterflies. There was one sitting on our back porch yesterday and Andrew said "Mom, you need to come take a picture!" He knows I'm a little snap happy - ha! These are just beautiful as always!
