Oooooh lovely. "Sometimes this would be all." All I needed right now!
GASP!!! How do you do it?! How? How? How? HOW?!!!
I second mythop... How ???Where would we be without you ?I can honestly say there are few things I enjoy more than looking forward to see what you are going share with us next. Sort of like sitting in a fine theatre, waiting for the curtains to open. Delicious moments of anticipation. And then the lights go down, and the show starts... pure magic. The butterflies are awesome. You must speak their language, to get them to pose like that...
The composition in the first shot is quite amazing. As though you said to the butterflies, "Ok, you stand there, and you there..." It makes the eyes go round and round, in fact, I couldn't quite see straight until returning to gaze upon the periwinkle field of pearls.
haha...upon viewing the comment I just posted I saw that Owen had already astutely commented as to the butterflies posing. I feel affirmed in knowing I am not alone in thinking that is an awesome picture.
aaaaaaahhhhhit's a dream!!!!you've turned my sunday morning into a dream of colours and butterflies, what magic!
Love the colors in the last one...and beautiful butterflies!BG
What did you pay the butterflies to pose for your photo? I haven't seen butterflies slow down much less sit still. The colors in your photos are so rich. You are indeed a master photographer. Remember your humble blogger friends when you are one day famous. Truly.
Yesterday a had seen a butterfly just like that one =)
Beautiful! The first is fantastic, the butterflies seem to be dancing! magical colors. As always some great jobs! A hug!
I've often wondered "how" myself but even if I never find out I'll be content seeing your beautiful works of art. The vivid color and magical lighting is mind blowing. You have an amazing talent!
So beautiful! Makes my heart smile to see these photos, we have had so much grey and mud here! xx
I'm glad everyone's clamouring around the butterflies as that allows me ro revel in the green peace (sorry about the pun) of that beautiful shaded area by the water, only emerging to warm myself with the brilliant hues of the hot flowers from time to time.The butterfly photo reminds me of a day many years ago when I came across dozens of butterflies doing what appeared to be mating dances on the ground, quite unconcerned by the human presence peering down at them. A magical moment, much like your photos (the magic of them, I mean)
What a set of photos! I'm in awe, I don't know what to say except that I feel like waking up far from any city and just have beautiful things like the ones in these shots in front of my eyes. Fantastic post!
I have nothing to add other than I am, as always, astonished by the perfection of your artistic eye and your ability to capture such beauty.
Gentle murmurs of nature in balance...
You couldn't find a better match than These Fevered Days and that inviting forest pond! Beautiful and deliciously cool. The macros are incredible. Those glittering orbs behind the butterflies! And the perfect clarity of the pink flowers in front with the soft, yellow ones in the back. Summer has now truly begun. xo
Hey there! Long time no see!Hope you are doing well. Beautiful photos! You are REALLY good...
Dear Stickup,Just wanted to leave another little note here, was thinking of you today when I started reading the first chapter of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Travels With A Donkey in the Cévennes". I couldn't help but think of you and your donkey friend... If you haven't read it already, I can only strongly encourage you to find a copy... just in the first chapter there are a number of priceless sentences about his hypocritical obstinate ass who has to be goaded in the worst way to advance in their travels... pure pleasure !
WOW! WOW! WOW!
The colors are really nice Regards
The fevered days arrive here too ...: o)Thank you for the freshness of the last image .. and the lightness of the first ... and the wonderful colors of the second ...Warm kisses..:o)
What exquisite photography. I don't want to leave this lush blue-green world, and will return to view these images again.
