Beautiful butterflies ... and a moth

For some reason lately I haven't been all that inspired to pick up my camera on a regular basis.  However a few times that I have picked up my camera, I captured some of my favorite creatures ... butterflies.






Monarchs seem to be few and far between around here this year, so I am glad to see the fritillaries and swallowtails.

And this hummingbird moth we came across the other day.

Butterflies seem to love purple flowers!  I need to plant more purple flowers!  :)

On another subject, although not completely unrelated, did you know that I have a Facebook page for my photography?  It is called Kimberly Vensel Photography.  Shocking, I know!  :)  I have been adding photos like these to my nature album because when I reach 100 likes I plan to give away a free 8x10 photo from my nature album.  The winner gets to choose which one they would like.  I'd love it if you'd head over and 'like' my page and help me give away a free print!  I don't post often to my page - once or twice a week at most - so I won't clog up your newsfeed.  :)  Thanks so much!

The butterflies have been plentiful this year. I have some thistle growing along my driveway and they LOVE that. So, I keep it. And it's a beautiful purple.

Lovely pictures.
