A small garden in the English style, set in the wilds of the northern Sonora Desert...
such sharp and beautiful images, Amy. (I am having trouble commenting from my new blog, so hoping this gets through .... Ann)
Thanks so much, Ann! I've been very happy working with my 85mm lens in the garden; it's light enough to carry around easily and still gives good close-ups for flowers and... butterflies :)
You did much better than I did in capturing a little skipper. Wonderful photos.
This one stayed put for a long time for me, Kris. All I had to do was follow around to get profile shots since the little creature seemed to prefer staying face-on... Thanks a lot :)
Perfect color coordination! That butterfly has a good taste!
One of those naturally perfect moments, Tatyana! These little Tetraneuris flowers also make a wonderful combination with the silvery blue butterflies... ;-)
The little flower must have been producing lots of nectar to keep the butterfly happy long enough for you to take such good photos.
It must have :) These wonderful little daisies (Tetraneuris acaulis) have just started blooming again in response to a couple of good rains. Thanks!
